Served in a snifter.

2008 vintage. I shall call him Lou le Pew. Tee-hee. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear burgundy-ruby topped by a finger of off-pink foam. The nose is a blast of sweet cherry wine (insert Tommy James reference, with or without Shondells), with a hint of light apple cider in the back for good measure. The taste brings in more of the same, though now the cherries come through with a bit of tartness, though with a clear restraint that keeps things from peeling the enamel from my teeth. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a decidedly dry finish. Overall, a very tasty cherry lambic, one that more than deserves the praise it receives.

Appearance is a clear magenta with a short pink head. Nose is full of tart cherries. I get some jammy qualities and almost a bit of rhubarb. Notes vinegar on the nose with slight hints of oak. The taste is delicious. Plenty of puckering tartness up front with delicious cherry forward profile. Not a whole lot of other adjectives I can use than cherry, but that is okay because this is delicious. Mouthfeel is heavily carbonated and tasty. Overall, delicious.

A: Very dark red. Almost purple. Pours with a very fizzy, light pink head. Good retention, but no lacing.

S: aroma is pure cherry essence. There is a very strong vinegar aroma that seems to burn off as the beer warms revealing the tart cherries.

T: Taste is more cherry. Tart cherries, but with some residual sweetness, which is nice since the sweetness is usually fermented out in these types of beers.

M: Lighter side of meduim in body. Heavier carbonation. Mild tartness.

O: This is a very very nice beer. I can really appreciate the restraint shown on this one, as this beers balance makes it quite enjoyable.
