Bayer Sauerkirsch Geheimnis

Brewery: Bayer (Zum Grünen Baum)
Town: Theinheim
Style:
Kriek
Color: Bordeaux

Head:
pink, fizzy, quickly dissipating
Nose:
sour cherry, black berry, currant
Body: medium

Palate: tart, sour cherry, currant, a bit of yeast
Finish: lingering, semi-dry

Served: from a bottle bought at the brewery

Impression: This is an impressive Franconian Kriek spontaneously fermented with added Bordeaux yeast. Sour cherries and sugar are added. It’s lagered in a Barique barrel and fermented and aged in the bottle. It’s from 2017 and suggested peak in 2020.  It’s got a lovely aroma and tart refreshing palate with no sweetness. While eating raspberries, the woody element comes forward. The lingering finish is dry enough to make it moreish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
