We are proud to release the Devil’s Cuvee Kriek, an oak barrel aged Devil’s Kriek Belgian style sour ale brewed with cherries. This labor intensive sour ale has been quoted as ‘the best version yet’ by beer bloggers and inciting cries of ‘damn that’s good!’ from across the bar. You can now get in on the barrel aged goodness at the Double Mountain taproom, throughout the Northwest, and parts of Southern California.
“I think the added complexity of the tannins and sugars from the wine barrels are a perfect marriage with our aged kriek, the additional year in the wood takes the beer to whole new level.”–Owner/Brewmaster, Matt Swihart.
Description: Carefully selected Devil’s Kriek from 2014 aged on Hood River Valley Bing and Vann cherries was given extra time in new French Oak barrels and blended with a small portion of next year’s Kriek. It’s time in the oak gave it more depth and wisdom, and ripened the fruit imparting a sherry and dry red wine character. The blend brings some youth and vivacity of the fruit to the table. With this beer we pay homage to the traditions set before us, and welcome the future ahead. 9.5% ABV, 12BU
