Tart cherry, faint wine presence and Belgian funk. A very good sour.

When fresh, the aroma is sweet, floral, and somewhat subtle. Flavor is phenolic, with a respectable sour quality. Five years aging increases the sourness considerably, revealing an acetic acid dominance, with floral hops highlighted in the aroma.
