Pours dark garnet. No light shines through. No bubbles and no lace.

Sour cherry aroma--attractive.

I taste raisins behind the sour base, less cherry. Thick body with a very low carbonation. The aftertaste was lip puckeringly sour with a touch of sweetness.

Drank on-tap at Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge, MA
Served in a cervoise

The beer poured a gorgeous, dark burgundy and was topped by a one-plus finger tall, bubbly and foamy, bright white crown. There might have been a bit of pink in the head, but it was tough to see in the bar. Spotty, drippy lacing trickled down the glass. The head fell to a thin yet resilient film.

Intense, fresh, dark cherry notes dominated the nose. Super jammy. Sweet yet balanced. There was a strong raisin presence as well. Good dose of brown sugar. Hint of balsamic. All in all, the aroma was rather straight forward, but so fragrant and enticing.

The flavor profile was also heavy on cherry, but it contained a lot more oak and sourness as well. Good dose of balsamic vinegar. Slight lactic acid presence. Touch of brown sugar. The beer tasted a lot more like a Flemish sour ale than a typical wild ale. Some lemony tartness appeared in the center. Crisp and slightly acidic. Lots of oak and vinegar on the off-dry finish. Nice overall balance of sweet/tart flavors.

The mouthfeel may have been the only less than stellar aspect of this beer. It was medium bodied with a crisp, almost soda-like effervescence. Fairly non-descript.

Cerise Cassée is an outstanding sour ale from the Cambridge Brewing Company that I will be happy to revisit. This is a fantastically flavorful, complex and refreshing offering from Will and Co.
