It is with great pleasure that we brew Devil's Kriek once a year at cherry harvest, and let it develop its intensity for a full twelve months, until it's time to do it again. This year's batch is intensely dark and fruity, thanks to over 70 lbs. per barrel of Bings (twice what we used last year) from Matt's orchard in Odell. The light sourness comes not from sour cherries, but from Brettanomyces "wild yeast", which slowly add the tang and a host of other funky flavors. A brown ale base provides a tasty counterpart to the fruit.
