  • More Details

The traditional Flemish cherry ale. This refreshing ale is based on Vichtenaar and has the aroma of Kirsch cherry brandy, smooth, vanilla-like oaky palate and late surge of passion-fruit flavors with some acidity. Local sour cherries are added during the maturation process to the wooden casks containing Vichtenaar. The final product is a blend of 1, 2 and 3 years old beers. The "Echte Kriek" in contrast to other kriek beers, only uses full kriek cherries. The "Echte Kriek" is a very refreshing beer, particularly suited to long, warm summer evenings.

It would be the perfect beer to match with or have as a sorbet, or rich and dense deserts.
