Had poured from 25.4-oz. corked-and-caged bomber, label stamped Bottle Date “April 2017,” into tulip. I’m not fond of cherries, and this beer is all about cherries, but this is a beautiful, tart, rather pricey Cherry beer.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 6/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/light copper color with a 1-2 finger foamy and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tart/tangy red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almond, lemon, plum, apricot, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, brown sugar, and bread crust; with lighter notes of vanilla, toasted oak, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrels, and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge sour/tart/tangy red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almond, lemon, plum, apricot, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, brown sugar, and bread crust; with lighter notes of vanilla, toasted oak, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang; and light yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almond, lemon, plum, apricot, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, brown sugar, bread crust, light leather/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrels, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/sourness and tangy fruit balance; with zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/sourness, fruit tang, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and grainy/acidic/tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.1%. Overall this is an amazing fruit lambic style! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrels, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and insanely easy to drink; with the modestly lactic/tangy/tannic/drying finish. Absolutely wonderful stuff, cherry pie in a glass. Loads of jammy, nutty, pitty cherry/stone fruit character with great Brett/Lacto complexity; nice oak presence and malt balance. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

A: Lots of Montmorency cherries on the nose, followed by light vinous notes.

A: Bright deep red color, opaque, with a fine dense light pink head that has adequate retention.

T: Baked cherry pie flavor upfront, followed by a moderate clean sourness with light funk and mild vinous character.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Tasty; the beer had great cherry aroma, but really comes together on the taste with baked cherry pie flavors complementing a clean sour complexity. Enjoyable to drink.
