Transatlantique Kriek 2014

www.newbelgium.com

Transatlantique Kriek is a slightly sour cherry kriek beer. The 2014 edition began life in the oaken vessels of Frank Boon’s brewery, deep in Belgium’s Lembeek Valley. After two years of wood aging, Boon’s spontaneously fermented kriek shipped across the Atlantic and found its way to New Belgium’s brew master, Peter Bouckaert. To go with Boon’s lambic ale, Bouckaert created a full golden brew to blend in, and round out, this light-bodied kriek. The intense cherry nose leads to a pleasing sweet and sour flash across the palate. Crisp and effervescent, Transatlantique Kriek is 8 percent ABV and available now, while supplies last, in 22-ounce bombers and on draft.
