Epicurean ruby red Kriek-styled ale registers mightily with coarsely addictive oak-casked Montmorency cherry tartness above fizzy soda flow. Apple cider sourness and sparkling champagne dryness outline cherry pie theme. Acidic grape esters wield into serene barley-wheat base. Dramatic cherrystone finish sustains intriguing succulence. At Great America Beer Fest ’02, many admirers attended only for the chance to try this cherished stone-fruited knockout.
