Pours a deep plum color with faint ruby highlights and a handsome cap of pink-tinged foam. The aroma consists most prominently of sour cherry. The flavor has a puckering sourness up front, accompanied by a strong cherry flavor reminiscent of cough syrup. There is also a slight oaken flavor that appears to struggle some against the cherry backbone. I'm a fan of Petrus, and of sour ales in general, but not so much of cherry. In this case, the cherry flavor is so predominant that it overrides my affinity for the style. Cherry lovers will doubtless enjoy this brew, but it's a bit too one-dimensional for my tastes.

A: Cherry red and filtered on first pour, tons of fine bubbled carbonation and a 4 finger head of raspberry latte or beige with a pinkish tinge.
S: Cherries off the bat, some sour acidic qualities, sour cherry Jolly Ranchers candies. Some dark brown malty qualities.
T: Sweet and cherries, a sort of aspartame bitterness. A burn of alcohol in the throat.
M: Medium thick and syrupy with medium low carbonation. A sort of tart and sweet coating stays on the tongue.
O: Certainly not the best example of this style, it should be known that it is full of cherry in the smell and taste. Goudenband, La Folie, and Monk’s Café’s versions for example are neither cherry nor sweet forward as this is. Still its nice to try the style, and it makes me realize the boundaries of the style extends further than I’d realized. Bought at Bruisin Ales in Asheville.
