Top notes of sharp cheddar and dill finishes well and lingers in a good way. Styled after a East Flanders sour brown. Tank aged with wild yeasts and steeped with sour cherries.

What a great beer. This is what I envision a sour should taste like.

- E. Flanders sour brown with sour cherries 7%. Served on tap from a chalice.

A: Whispy small khaki head quickly disperses, with no visible window dressing or carbonation. The body, when backlighted was a dark-mahogany brown around the edges.

S: Aroma of sour brown malt, hint of tart cherries, the sourness aspect is very light.

T: The flavor had some sour cherries, dark fruit with a light wild sourness of black cherries that was very smooth. Some dark sweetness, light sour twang, with a bit of funky barrel woodiness.

M: Decent amount of carbonation, body was medium full, a bit syrupy and slick.

O: Overall nice flavor, polished smoothness, very light wild yeast will be a welcome for some, a bit demeaning for the hardcore. Labeled as an american wild ale drinks more like a flanders. A good flavor, was expecting a bit more pungent sourness.
