Cherry and beer? If you ask us, a true match made in beer-heaven. Better known as “Kriek Lambic” to true beer experts, this category of beers is guaranteed to refresh and delight your taste buds with their incredible tanginess.
Plus, there’s fruit in it, so it’s a win-win… Right?
Here’s our list to discover the best cherry beers you can try with us…
Timmermans Kriek is one of the classic cherry lambics with an amazing almondy aftertaste that gives it a dry palatability. If you fancy a nice Kriek and you want to go for a classic, award winning one, this is the right choice for you.
Lindemans Kriek is certainly one of a kind. Thanks to the addition of fresh sour cherries juice to the lambic beer, this brew has an incredible acidity that will leave you craving for more. Simply, delicious.
You probably know that we love a nice Chouffe. But did you know that one of their most recent creations is an incredible cherry flavoured beer? Cherry Chouffe brings all the joy and taste of a Chouffe together with the fruitiness of the cherry. The end result is an incredible craft beer with notes of almonds, sweet port wine and strawberries.
Everything is special in the Liefmans Kriek Brut. First, it’s crafted by macerating cherries in an old brown beer, then it’s matured for a whole year and then it’s blended with various ages of Oud Bruin and Goudenband beer.
If you enjoy a nice fruity beer as much as we do, you probably already know of Floris Kriek. This is a surprisingly refreshing and easy drinking brew that is guaranteed to make all of your drinking nights a memorable one thanks to the tanginess of Maraschino Cherries.
If a beer goes by the name “Sudden Death” you can rest assured that it is a good one. Mort Subite is a lambic beer made from blending a young lambic, morello cherries and a three-year-old lambic. Try it at your own risk: it seems delicious!
An incredible sparkling cherry brut beer from Oud Beersel. If you love kriek beer and you think you are ready to take it to the next level, this is an incredibly posh option that will gain you the reputation of a true beer connoisseur.
Petrus Cherry Chocolate is a Belgian Quadruple brewed with six different varieties of malt that is blessed by the juice of the finest cherries only and has a pervasive hint of chocolate. The result is an incredibly strong and full-bodied beer with the addition of liquid nitrogen that ensures the right pressure in the bottle.
Lambics, sour cherries (200g per litre) and the right fermentation process can produce wondrous results. In this case, it’s the Cantillon Kriek. Fruity, almondy and perfectly refreshing, you can enjoy the changes in taste as the fruit component matures in the bottle.
Like many other lambics, Kriek De Ranke is made by blending young and old soured pale ales together. Then this incredible mixture is blessed by the presence of fresh Polish cherries that go on to mature for six months.
A kriek beer but make it FLOSS. Now, don’t get over-excited, it’s just an acronym that stands for Flemish Old Style Sours. The Slaapmutske is an old school brown cherry beer that has a distinctive oak aftertaste due to its maturation process, that takes place in oak barrels. You definitely don’t want to miss this!
Being a local source of pride – Titanic is brewed in Stoke on Trent- we particularly love the Titanic Cherry Dark.
What makes it incredibly special is not the place where it’s crafted, but the interesting mixture of US and Slovenian hops used to brew a lambic and the delicious cherries that contribute to making this amazing dark bitter.
You MUST try this.
