3.8/5 rDev -7.3%
This beer poured a very dark clear amber color and formed an off white slightly pink foamy head that coated that glass with lace as it subsided. A heavy amount of carbonation. An aroma of malt, cherries and chocolate. A flavor of malt, cherries and chocolate. The body is fairly light and the finish sweet yet sprite. Some astringency helps give it a champagne type aspect.

A: Poured a cloudy reddish brown color with good carbonation and a dirty white cap

Nose: cherries, oak, a little sourness.
Appearance: beautiful deep reddish brown. Minimal head on the pour and disappears quickly.
Taste: sour, a little smokiness (oak?), cherries, pear, green apple.
Mouth-feel: Very champagne-like mouth-feel. Great carbonation, the sourness makes the back of the tongue really wake up.
Overall: Great beer, one of my favorite when it comes to sours.

Poured from a beautifully paper wrapped 750 bottle into a Lindemans Framboise flute glass.
A: Pours a brownish-red with a nicely formed pinkish head and slight lacing.
S: Fermented cherries & oak, especially as it warms; sweet cheap pipe tobacco and a faint trace of lemon, maybe it's just the tartness?
T: Cherries, not overtly sweet, slightly tart, bitter.
M: Dry, almost like a champagne because of this and the carbonation.
D: I'm not a lambic connoisseur and was worried this would be overtly sweet: it wasn't and I'm left wishing there were more to it, more complexity, more alcohol, more fruit. I wasn't looking for bombastic flavor, but was hoping for more than this. It's been brewed once a year since 1679, they must be doing something right. Interesting that it's a blend of different vintages. Good beer with an amazing history, ultimately left me wanting more.

Beer poured from bottle into a stemmed-Tulip shaped glass
A - Beer has a cherry reddish colored body; formed a small half finger size head; cloudy body; little visible carbonation; nice layered lacing formed; viscous in appearance, kind of thick
S - Cherries - you can smell it from across the room; sour apple smell; red-wine - grapes; sour vinegar; very sparkling champagne-esq
T - Deep cherry flavor; slight sour champagne wine taste; mostly berries; fruit citrus flavors of orange and pineapple are in there as well
M - Full body feel; effervescent; sweet fruit, cherry-strawberry aftertaste
D - Good dessert or summertime drink; nice complex fruit flavors

Purchased a 750 ml bottle at Smokin' Joe's in Pittsburgh and split it 3 ways with 2 friends. Not sure what the BOD, if it had one, was. Poured into those weird glasses SJ's has...
A - Poured a really lovely reddish tinted dark brown color with a nice foamy, 1 finger tannish cap. Not much in the way of lacing.
S - Sweet and tart cherries right off the bat. Woody oak and a slight wild aroma comes next. Sweet toffee notes come out as well. Really nice nose here.
T - Taste follows the nose with a bit of a sour tinge to it. Not a mouth puckering flavor, but close to it from the tart cherries in the mix. Really nice cherry flavor mixed with oak and light malts in the background.
M - High carbonation level and a lighter bodied beer. Nice tartness and a slightly sour feel as well. Really nice feel and kept me coming back for more.
O - Really impressed by this one. Really made cherries the star and was a great end to a night at the bar, I will definitely be looking for this one again soon.
