Hof ten Dormaal Brewery's Kriek (ABV 6.5%) is an original Belgian Farmhouse ale, brewed traditionally with real sour cherries and other ingredients produced on the family farm. It is spontaneously fermented, and then aged for many months in oak barrels.

Pours a deep, hazy burgundy with a small pink head and visible carbonation. Big tart cherry aroma with complexity from earthy, funky, and oaky notes. Tastes of tart cherry, nicely dry, with oak and vanilla notes. 11.2 oz bottle.

Hof Ten Dormaal Brewery was founded in 2009 when André Janssens decided to add a brewery to the family farm in Tildonk. The point of the brewery was to be very traditional, yet strictly ecological. No ordinary brewery, it is designed to be nearly 100% self-sustaining. They grow all their own grain and hops, cultivate their own yeast strain, and even power the brewery with rapeseed oil that they produce.

Just as important, their beers are stunning. Simple, yes, but they are designed to be – each brew containing a single grain, single hop, and single yeast strain. They are, however, nothing short of exquisite.

Original Belgian farmhouse ales brewed strictly via traditional methods but pushing the boundaries of Belgian styles and techniques to find their unique place in Belgium's renowned brewing culture.
