Friek by Odell Brewing Company
Lambic - Fruit
6.50 % ABV

FRIEK is an evolution, an imaginative amalgamation invented by our brewers. Multiple KRIEK Lambic style ales are fermented with WILD yeast and TART cherries and then moved into OAK BARRELS to age and sour taking on the CHERRY flavors. As the beer matures, FRAMBOISES (raspberries) from Schroyer Family Farms in Fort Collins are handpicked and readied for the beer. The fresh RASPBERRIES are added immediately prior to the final blending. The sweet and tart flavors MINGLE on the tongue with a sparkling dry finish.

It pours a hazy pinkish red with a 1 finger head of foam and a bit of lacing.

The nose is of sour fruits...I can smell both the cherries and the raspberries with an underlying note of oak.

The taste is sour cherries and raspberries, mild oak, finishes very dry and very satisfying. This is a well made American Wild Ale that I don't mind paying the bucks for. It will fill the loss of caged and corked La Folies for me.

Light bodied, effervescent carbonation, the mouthfeel is good and it's very drinkable. Thanks, Odell!

Price: $16.30 Served In: Pint Glass
