Cherry-infused sour ale. A medium-bodied wheat beer with a reddish-brown color, cherry-pie aroma, and a tart, acidic bite that comes from a combination of real cherries (in puree form) and cultured bacteria.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
This recipe, a sour Belgian-style ale, comes from the brewing log of NB's Michael Dawson, homebrewer for 13 years and harborer of bacteria for probably a lot longer than that. The kit yields a medium-bodied wheat beer with a reddish-brown color, cherry-pie aroma, and a tart, acidic bite that comes from a combination of real cherries (in puree form) and cultured bacteria. While young, the sour character of this beer will be subdued and the cherries more pronounced, but sourness will increase with age.

I have heard that lambics can take years to age. What kind of aging is needed for dawsons kriek?
Anthony B on May 8, 2015
Best Answer: Lambics can take years to age properly to reach the peak of flavor and aroma. Dawson's Kriek is no different and will continue to age well for years. The beer can be consumed younger but may not be at peak flavor.

Are there fermentation temperature considerations with this brew? I was under the impression lambics needed to be at 45-50F during secondary.
Thanks

Best Answer: Raymond,

This kit should be fermented in the 65-70F range for both primary and secondary fermentation. There is no need to do a cooler secondary.

Best Answer: You can add any fruit you'd like. It wouldn't by definition be a Kriek since that's defined by the cherries, but it should still taste good.
