2011 vintage, C&C 750ml. Teku glass.

A: Pours crimson with a half finger of attractive, pink-tinted foam, receding moderately soon to a thick ring. Minimal lacing but very good retention.

S: Gorgeous aroma of cherry, red wine, light funk, a bit of grassiness, and dry cinnamon toast.

T: Cherry and funk meld well, with a light tartness building to more of a moderate sourness. A nice red wine character, with light oak in the background. Fairly dry.

M: Medium body and medium light carbonation.

O: Phenomenal flavors and highly drinkable. The cherry is light but still noticeable, and the light to moderate tartness makes this highly drinkable and a good pairing with food. If only this were widely available, I could see drinking this all summer long.

Bottled on April 26, 2011.

Pours ruby red with a dark pink one finger head which vanishes immediately, leaving no lacing. The aroma has tart cherries, barnyard funk, and some oak.

Tastes both sweet and tart with tart cherries, oak, funk, and Belgian yeast. Not as acidic as many sours, but there is still some acidity present.

Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. There is a tart cherry aftertaste. Finishes dry. A very well made sour. Too bad Shelton Brothers pulled out of Minnesota. I don't know when or if I will get a chance to pick up another bottle.
