Pulled a 2.5 year old bottle from the cellar and am drinking it one day before its best by date. Even after some age it still has a very big cherry nose with touches of sweet and tart and a hint of fresh compost. It is one of the most beautiful beers I have seen. It pours a lively brilliant cherry under a very rocky pure white 1” foam cap. Very rich cherry palate with herbal, black cherries, lemony tartness and over ripe fruit. While there is sweetness in the background, there is an overall dryness and a balancing tartness. The beer is effervescent with a fine bead. Midrange between sweet and sour, well balanced and put together.

Mild sour but just the right amount of cherries. Anyone who likes de garde or fruity beers will love this

Don't want to do a full review but in short: sweet cherry nail polish.
