The Freak

Hypocrisy abounds for me for anticipating Odell Friek as much as I have. But, raspberries do that to me. For those that don't know Odell Friek is a sour wild ale with raspberries and the dreaded cherries and aged in oak barrels. Raspberry trumps all, though, in my beer drinking. I bought a sixer of Shock Top Raspberry Wheat the first time I saw it and even looked forward to drinking it. Imagine my excitement for a raspberry beer from Odell, a brewery I really enjoy, even if Avant Peche didn't quite hit for me.

Limited supplies of Friek are available today on the Missouri side, Royal Liquor, Gomer's, Lukas, the usual suspects are your best options. The Friek will be available in Kansas next week.

  1. I got my hands on some about a month ago when my friend Nate @ www.kcbrewreview.com went to Colorado for a bit. I must say, it's pretty great stuff.

  2. Northland hot spots of Gomer's and Bubbles each got 3 bottles. They have less than that now. Charging $19-$20

  3. I am a hypocrite as well with this. I hate raspberries, but I'm hoping the cherries and oak overtake it. Plus, it's Odell, so I'm in. If I can get some of it.

  4. There were only five unreserved bottles left at Royal as of a few minutes ago when I snagged mine.

  5. Am I the only one wondering how this is the same price as Cantillon or 3 Fonteinen fruit lambics?
