The fresh flavors from the cherries pop off the acid and the dried fruit flavor in the classic Flemish Red-style beer. The added cinnamon bark, used as a popsicle stick, brings out some of the phenolic characters of the yeast.
In the pitcher of a blender, add the cherries, simple syrup, almonds and salt. Pulse the mixture to make a paste, then drizzle in the Flemish Red until the mixture is puréed into a fine liquid. Pour the mixture into the prepared molds and place in the freezer for about an hour. The mixture should be a slight slushy consistency. Add the cinnamon sticks to the center of each mold and place back into the freezer, chilling until solid, about 4–6 hours. Remove and serve immediately, or transfer to a seal-able container.
