"The color is almost heartbreakingly stunning; reds, roses, pinks, and oranges, all at once, like a beautfiul sunset. The aroma opens up with a barnyard gambit, but this quickly dissipates, allowing complex aromatics of cherries, wood, earth, vanilla, and mold to come through... The Finish is long, tart, fruity, and finally drying. An absolute masterpiece."
Garrett Oliver, The Brewmaster's Table, p. 77-78

Each batch of its Kriek offers therefore different aromas and flavors only based on the century old knowledge of the Hanssens family.

After the blending the Kriek (with 70 kg of black Belgian cherries per 600 Lt. barrel) is bottled, corked and stored in the cellar for secondary fermentation at 50o-55oF for over one year.



Tasting Notes

The taste is full of sour cherries with hints of wildness and oak that blends well with the extreme acidity, and slight residual sweetness.

Long, tart and fruity finish. Dry finish.
