Kriek. A staple fruit for the Belgian inspired is the cherry. Bold flavor, intense color, and amazing aromas make this fruit one of the best choices for beer makers. ‘Kriek’ starts out as a blend of one year old lambic-inspired barrels, combined with a mix of frozen tart cherries at a rate around 2 lbs per gallon. After two months of secondary fermentation and maturation the beer is sent to bottles and kegs for conditioning. The beer has brilliant jammy notes reminiscent of cherry pie, slightly sweet while finishing crisp and dry. 6.4%
Careful With That Peach, Eugene. This is a Lambic-inspired sour ale with peaches. Glorious aromas of juicy ripe fruit gets your mouth watering before you take your first sip.

Rose Splendor. This is a Lambic inspired base beer refermented in oak barrels with Pinot Grigio juice, Candy Snaps grapes, raspberries & blueberries and bottle conditioned for 6 months. This is the first time we’ve packaged a beer using grape juice rather than all whole grapes. The result is a beer that has a crisp dry texture and less tannins but has all the aroma and flavor of the grapes. The aroma of this beer is very fruit with notes of pear, apple, raspberry, floral notes, spun sugar and white wine. The flavor is very reminiscent of sparkling wine with crisp fruity apple notes with fresh raspberry undertones, blueberry skins, pleasant acidity and a touch of oak and alcohol warmth. 8.3%
