From a bottle, pours a cloudy pink color, standard carbonation, but not alot of head. Very wispy and disappears quickly.

The nose is tart and fruity. Lots of cherry, raspberry, blackberry and yeast. I get zero barrel notes. The flavor is very tart cherries, funky, grain malt. Very acidic crisp finish.

Overall, this left me wondering what this beer tasted like before two years in a barrel. This is as average as a fruit lambic can be. A good attempt, but still a long way off from the top tier.

Lovely rosé color with champagne bubbles streaming in the Petrus goblet. Aroma of cider fermenting with a whiff of vinegar.

Quite tart and definitely in the sour category. The flavors are quite clean. some hints of fruit Quite sippable despite the acidity. Interesting oily and sharp mouthfeel.

Thanks to Jason for this one. From the 750 ml swing-top purchased in Tucson.
