a bit of a dirty red
natural cherry aroma, some tartness and a bit of old barrel
flavor is a good tartness that is refreshing but not puckering. cherries again very natural
Thin and fine tickling carbonation
Nice

22oz bomber into a tulip. no bottle dating could be found.

nice looking pinkish red body with a small pinkish white head replenished by a good stream of carbonation. little in the way of lacing though.

Sour and mildly funking on the nose.

Sour, tart, fairly light cherry taste as is to be expected. any funk on the nose doesn't really come through in the taste. . Flavors are muted but pleasant.

mouth is medium to full, finish is a tart cherry flavor.

Overall, and enoyable sour beer, a blend of olde Belgium Lambic and New Belgium sour golden ale.

A 22 fl. oz. bomber, 2016 vintage. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy ruby red colour with an almost two finger whitish pink head that had pretty good retention and left some nice curtain lacing.

Aroma: Lots of cherry, lifesaver cherry hard candy with perhaps a touch of oak.

Taste: Sweet and sour cherry, lightly candied, oak, but flavours overall were a bit soft.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.

Overall: Aromas were great, but flavours while good, were a little too soft on the palate for me. Also, not a lot of funk in the aroma or flavours, which is not a problem for me, but just a comment since I was expecting some.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice purple color. Nose is raspberry, tea, and a bit sour. Taste is stone, bread, cherry syrup. A bit light and watery, which was a surprise. Not nearly as sour as I had hoped. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, this is a pretty drinkable beer, but nothing spectacular.

2016 vintage from a bottle stored properly-pours a beautiful deep, clear ruby red color. Taste is dark cherry with a hint of oak along with a nice belgian sweetness. Very smooth and easy to drink. Only knock is a very thin, watery mouthfeel.
