750ml bottle into a Cantillon tulip.
A: Pours a very dark ruby body with a nice slightly pink head.
S: Very fruity aroma. Wafting notes of cherry, light brett and acetic acidity, raspberry, a bit lactic, some juicy and vinous tannins.
T: Sweet cherry flesh, light acetic tartness, a bit more nebulous red fruitiness, drying oak, slight vanilla, lactic and cherry sweetness in the finish.
M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: Definitely drinkable and complex, but at this point the cherry sweetness is a bit out of proportion. Maybe with some age the fruit will fade and the bugs will do a little more work.
Serving type: bottle
