Light reddish burnt orange pour. The smell lets those sour cherries rip! Has supporting wine, wood, stonefruit, lemon zest and some funk. Taste is not that sour in comparison, in fact it is more vinous if anything, with some barnyard funk and slight musk. Feel is a bit bright for a traditional lambic, but has good composition for the style throughout.

750ml bottle, cork and caged, first release. Lighter pink body, slight amber hue, one finger white head, fair retention and a bit of lacing. Smell is freshly cut cherries; a bit of that perfume-y cherry flesh when combined with the moderate lemony acetic acidity, light oak, touch of stonefruit, trace of sweet grain and perhaps a touch of white wine sweetness. Flavour follows; on a background of stonefruit, slight grainy sweetness and oak, there is a moderately tart cherry skin, which combined with the lemon zest and mineral of the house wild base, gives off a flavour that is akin to some of the Casey Cherry Cut bottles I've had- more specifically, more like a Montmorency (rather than Balaton) lineage. If you like that one, you'll like this one. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, easy to drink with a good, moderate acetic acidity to it that lingers on the palate for a while.

11/17/18 (Chicago): 1 oz pour into taster glass at FOBAB. Peach color pour, sour cherry aroma. Sweet wine taste, not sour as aroma would lead. Thin fizzy mouth feel. Overall very good offering.
