375ml bottle bb 4/10/34

Deep red pour with creamy pink head; smells like sweet cherry pie filling and lemon with a touch of bready malt. The cherry tastes surprisingly dry and intense. It steals the show and overshadows the base lambic. However what is there is really tasty. Moderately sour. There is some lemon and apple on the taste and an oakiness that adds some astringent medicinal quality. There is also an earthiness throughout but not very funky. The mouthfeel is great. Tiny bubbles and creamy head work as a perfect delivery system for this cherry pie in a glass. I really like this beer and glad I finally found it on the shelf at my local shop. It's nicely balanced and a pleasure to drink. Perhaps the base lambic would develop a little bit more with some age - but I'm not sure how the intense cherry flavor would fare. I'll just have to put one away for awhile and find out.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

375ml corked and caged bottle served in an Allagash chalice. Best before 18-04-2032 printed on the back label. Pours the color and clarity of cranberry juice with a rocky, three inch, pink-colored head. Nose expresses citrus, cork, horse blanket and a hint of cherries. Taste consistent with nose; however, there's also a suggestion of cinnamon and cherry sucrets. Mouthfeel is light in body with a carbonation that falls just shy of lively and a mild acidity. Overall, a decent fruit lambic but a little too medicinal for my sensibilities.

Appearance: The head is quite impressive, thick and reddish pick that dissolves moderately slowly and leaves little lacing

Smell: Smells of tart cherries, with an almost leathery feeling.

Taste: Sweet cherries come out for a spit second, and sourness is quickly followed almost as if they sour while in your mouth. This is followed by a bitterness not reminiscent of hops, but of green unripened crab-apples.

Mouthfeel: it has a high level of carbonation and a dryness that leaves your palate wanting more.
Drinkability: The acidity and dryness makes this beer quite refreshing, would drink all the time!

4.26/5  rDev +2.4%

Appearance: It has a nice deep ruby color to it. It has a nice light pink head that dies down moderately and leaves very light lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of tart cherries, some woody oak, some acidity, some lemon and definite funk.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has loads of tart cherries, some lemon, a nice acidic character, light oak, some funk and a slight earthiness on the back.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle
