A-Pours clear ruby read with no head, just a thin ring of brilliant white head. No lacing.
S-Phenomenal. Reminds me of drinking vintage Rodenbach Grand Cru in Antwerp. Earthy, with muted cherry tartness and an undercurrent of syrupy sweetness.
T/M-This is exceptional stuff. Cherry sweetness right up front, complemented by well integragted tart fruit acidity. A baseline of brett funk ties it all together.
O-So friggin' good.

Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.
A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.
S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.
T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.
Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
Serving type: on-tap
