This morning you get your first look at an exciting new collaboration beer coming from New Belgium Wood Cellar Reserve. This is Le Kriek Noir and it is an authentic cherry lambic dark sour ale matured together in wine barrels. This beer uses a “small portion of authentic kriek lambic” from Brouwerij Oud Beersel in Belgium to create 2016 Transatlantique Kriek. That beer was then blended with a single foeder of New Belgium dark sour beer. If that’s not enough fun, this beer was then aged 36 months in original red wine barrels that started the New Belgium sour program back in 1998. This beer will hit 7.3%-AbV and it will be packaged in 375ml & 750ml bottles. Stay tuned for release details.
