3.54/5 rDev -0.6%
Thin pink head, decent retention, clear ruby red body.
Cherry aroma with wheat and straw.
Not particularly sweet, nor funky. Cherry pits come to mind.
Soft mouthfeel, lively.
This is a drinkable lambic, but it doesn't stand out at all. I would prefer more sweetness, more tartness, and more evidence of wild yeast.

3.35/5 rDev -5.9%
Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a deep reddish purple color with a small bubbly pink tinged head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of sweet and tart cherries dominate the aroma. Hints of tart lemon, balsamic, brown sugar, and earth round out the nose. The flavor is quite a bit sweeter than I was anticipating. Dark sugary sweet with plenty of tart and sweet cherry flavor but seriously lacking in much lactic tartness to offset the sweetness. Hints of almond flavor and a bit of earthiness round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Super easy to drink, more tart than a Lindemans but less than I was expecting.

A: Cherry red and filtered, this beer appears to have no carbonation. It has a finger of bright pink head with a slight brown tinge.
S: Lambic lactic macaroni quality, dusty oak and old wood quality, totally reminds me of the atmosphere in Cantillon. Some cherry quality.
T: Cherry sweet and strawberry jam. Sour puckering balance, light macaroni, some acidic like a tart unripe fruit.
M: Medium body, lots of light foamy carbonation.
O: Not a bad lambic, certainly not my favourite as I lean towards the unsweetened verson. Love the scent, taste is okay and mouthfeel not bad.
