PX sherry barrel Kriek

While looking for old sherry barrels, we cannot get lucky all the time. While we will be sourcing barrels directly from bodegas to assure provenance and quality, we had a batch of Pedro Ximenez (PX) barrels that was on the peated side (albeit subdued). As a result, we decided not to use them for Zenne y Frontera, but to blend them with other (fruit) lambikken into geuze and fruit blends.
This is the first of such blends to be released. Sour cherries were macerated partly on young peated lambik and partly on two-year old straight lambik in a stainless steel tank. We blended with young and three-year old (!) lambik. 55% of the blend is old lambik and the final fruit intensity is 567 grams of sour cherries per litre.

Very woody, intense cherries, hint of Sherry. Will be more amazing in a few years.

One of the things I was looking forward to was this sherry IR. And it paid off. Incredibly juicy cherries, rich and lightly tart, marred with sweet sherry and funky lambic. Super bright and intense flavours, absolutely lovely.
