Friek in three words

A long overdue 3-word beer review, I sat down with a bottle of Odell’s Friek this week. In short, here’s what I got from the cool-labeled, cherry-and-raspberry, oak-aged lambic:

1. balanced-frambo/krieky-fruitaliciousness

2. flavaromadelic-wooden-acid-love-with-rosy-hues-of beauty

3. undercarbonated

I shoved that frieking beer into that goblet, but as you can see, it is flatter than a pancake. It’s my only complaint for this yummy beer and the only Odellian misstep I’ve encountered. Effing great brewery. Though this beer is flat, it doesn’t fall flat. I enjoyed it nonetheless.

  1. Strange – the bottle I got had great carbonation… Not the best head retention, but definitely not undercarbonated in the least.
