Wedding Gift from Ron at SB. Many thanks. Cellared in my cellar for 13 months but dated 28 November 2006. Wife and I planned on drinking it on the first anniversary but the baby got in the way. Here we are 4 weeks later and we finally get to drink it.

Cork pops without much fanfare. Pours with a very subtle pink head that dissipates rapidly. Very little visible carbonation remains but bubbles are present on the tongue. Strikingly beautiful body. True cherry red, a hair lighter than burgundy. Translucent. Very pretty beer.

Aroma of tart cherries and must. Mellow. Really chillin.

Taste is dominated by real cherry flavor. Less creamy than other offerings from Drei Fontein but that trademark lactic quality is present. Kind of like a lighter, slightly tarter version of New Glarus Belgian Red. In many ways much closer to a Door County cherry wine than a beer.

Mouthfeel is funky but subdued. This is quite mellow by Drei Fontein standards. Acidic. Quite tart but not particularly sour.

Drinkability: Perfect. I could drink quite a lot of this.

Serving type: bottle
