New Jersey

4.49/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

375ml corked bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

AP: Dark purple/red colour, but when held directly in front of the light it's shade is a cross between strawberry and pomegranate. Started with a 1.5" fluffy light pink head that was bubbling thick foam which settled down to 1/8" with light lacing on the sides.
AR: A little ACV, a lot of Belgian barnyard funk, plentiful tart/sour cherries, musty damp wood, grape and apple skins. Beautiful mixture of aromas here.
T: Nice clean crisp flavours of apple cider, sour/tart cherries, grape skins, musty oak, barnyard funky yeast, green apple skins. They all blend harmoniously together in great balance.
M: Mild carbonation, acidity on the tongue is just about right, crisp and leaning towards dry despite the best efforts of the cherries, clean lip smacking cleansing finish.
OV: I love Lambics, Sours and Wild Ales and this is a superb offering. The flavours were in near perfect balance with each other, nothing dominating. Nothing really complex about this brew, but when it's so well crafted like this it doesn't need to be. Just delicious and rewarding, a true treat.
