Bottle #26 of 180 provided by Jake65 at the Friday the 13th tasting..
Slightly cloudy reddish amber brew.. lite pink tinge to a descent head.
Aroma is fruity and woody... a little hot alcohol.. but the cherries and the tannic wood elements play first and second fiddle.
I know this is barrel aged, but are they used barrels? I get a little winey aspect that could easily be mistaken for the cherries.. sweet cherries essence is sorta dried out by some oakey tannic elements... the body is a bit on the thicker side.. and the carbonation may be a tad light for a beer this heavy.
Glad I got to try this.. hopefully, I will get to again soon.. but for now, I think it is a good experiment now that Montana is allowed to brew bigger beers, but this is no where near a traditional Kriek and should probably not even have the word on the label, even if it is used tongue in cheek.
Overall.... a pretty good beer and a good base for Big Sky to really run with and continue to improve upon.
