Aroma is cherries, fruit and slightly off-putting/rank. The flavor is cherries, fruit, malts, mild sweetness, slight funk and big sour/tart in the finish.

375ml C&C bottle, best by 17/12/2022. Served in a Cantillon tumbler glass.

Pours a very dark purple with a two finger thick purple head, moderate collar, nice retention, very bubbly with short-lived lacing. Smells of red grape skin, cherry skin, nice vinous character, oak, mild funk. Nothing too complicated; slight hints of grape juice that's thankfully mostly overcome by the cherry character. Flavour is similarly cherry-forward, kind of like black cherry skin, red vinous character, oak, just the slightest bit of funk but certainly lacking in that department. In a sense, it's AWA-like. Mild-moderate acetic presence, a bit like what I would imagine black cherry greek yogurt to taste like. Mouthfeel is medium-thinner bodied, good carbonation, not difficult to drink, on the slightly thin side, good tartness and cherry skin finish. Overall, solid cherry sour that isn't impressive in any one department, but solidly well-rounded.

This pours a deep purple. At first I thought how beautiful a red it was, but it's far too dark to be anything but midnight purple, the color of blueberries, dark cherries, acai. There's absolutely no head, I had to agitate it to get any at all, only for it to fade almost instantly. Damn tart. Tart cherries, sour, a bit of sweetness on the end. Almost a cherry juice quality, but the acidity does a mighty fine job of balancing it. A touch of bitterness, which could be tannins from the fruit skin or barrel aging. I'm really enjoying the puckering, cherry juice, fruity sour quality this beer has. Almost a shame I drank it alone.
