New Belgium Brewing and Old Beersel of Belgium have partnered to create TRANSATLANTIQUE KRIEK , a spontaneously fermented lambic ale made with sour cherries. The 2016 edition of Transatlantique Kriek began life in the oaken vessels of Gert Christiaens’ Oud Beersel, a 130-year-old Belgian lambic brewery. After time spent aging in wood, Oud Beersel’s lambic was blended with tart cherries and shipped across the Atlantic to New Belgium.
Dark Ale aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from local wineries, black currants, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus.. Rich flavors of chocolate truffle, spice, tobacco, currants, and a bit of Cabernet.
Brown Ale aged in used Pinot Noir barrels w/ sour cherries, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus. Flavors from the cherries, Pinot Noir and oak balance each other nicely with a little funk from the brett.
