Poured from a 12.7oz bottle into an Allagash stemmed glass. Acquired in a trade with ChrisInRI, thank you!

Pours a deep, hazy, brick red body with a small fizzy white head that reduces quickly to leave little lacing and no retention. Very nice color.

Aromas are potent and inviting - lots of cherries coming through, very Kriek-like, tart fruityness, lactic sourness.

On the tongue, the first notes to come through are a light cherry, tart fruitskins, funky barnyard, saisony yeast, musty basement, lemon juice, light banana, with an acidic astringency left on the tongue on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body. No alcohol detected for 8%.

Very nice, complex and flavorful, nicely balanced and tart.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Golden copper body. Fleeting head. Large islands of foam remain.

Smell - Musty cherry with some caramel malts. Not very acidic smelling, but it's there.

Taste - Sour. Acetic sourness, but it isn't overpowering. Cherry tartness blends into a caramel malt flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Good flavors, but not a very complex beer.
