on tap at Uncle Mike's Highway Pub in Kenoahs, Wisconsin. poured into a snifter with a deep rouge color and garnet highlights. one and a half fingers of light pink head top it off with good retention and no lacings.
aroma is of rich vinegar-like sourness with a subtle cherry note and some grape in the background. very sharp and sour in the nose. the sourness gets a bit more pronounced as the beer warms a bit.
taste is more of the same with a more distinct cherry note and a wonderful acidic vinegar-like sourness that cleanses the palate. sharp and not too sweet, which really helps make it drinkable. the sourness is sustained by a light funk that works its way up to the fruit as the beer warms.
mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sharp, acidic and lightly tart texture that finishes on a lightly sharp note with residual tartness. excellent.
drinkability is great. very well put together and sour on the palate, this could easily become too sweet, but the fruit is nicely understated enough to make it very drinkable and supremely sour. cheers!

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.
