I really liked the pink meets yellow appearance, reminded me of Hulk Hogan when he would wear his feather boas. Small even more pink head to it, about 2/5" I would say.
Aroma was tart, sour, the small kind of cherry aroma, lactic acid. Wasn't heavy or pungent, nice deft touches to the aroma. Minimal funk.
Taste, plenty sour, even the blond ale character comes through in the body. The cherry isn't deep or rich like New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red, its a different creature altogether. Its a lighter, more bitter, more tart/sour kind of cherry. There is just a touch of wood and vanilla along with the sour notes.
It was real 'fresh' in terms of the cherry notes back around NYE (Another bottle opened courtesy of koufax21 at the Velasquez/Dos Santos 2 fight). Nice and dry delivery, relatively low alcohol makes this a great beer for summertime (wheels turning, should open one at Silva/Weidman pool party fight this summer). While there is a little bit of sweetness, its well placed with this beer. Funkiness to a minimum, which I tend to like. Carbonation is light, which is fine.

2014 Preservation Society bottle.
A - Cloudy pinkish orange, super effervescent (it was a gusher). No head or lacing, fair enough for the style.
S - You can smell the tartness. Assertive notes of sour cherry and background of light brett funk.
T - Extremely sour. Mouth puckering, forehead sweating, eye twitching sour. Big cherry notes, hints of cherry pie brett notes. Hard to discern much else.
M - Medium body, slightly sticky.
O - Great AWA, not as subtle and nuanced as excellent kriek, too heavy handed in the tartness. Still delicious and a treat.
