Bottles at share. Pink/purple pour, flat. Aroma is tart, sour cherries. Taste is more of the cherries, as it should be. Velvety smooth with a lingering pucker.

2018 release with the new label-art refresh, trying this pretty fresh for the first time. Ruby-purple in appearance, cloudy, with a bright fizz and no retention or lacing. Tart cherry on the nose, mouth-puckeringly sour on the tongue, and a high-quality mild funk to go along with it.

Poured into a pokal, the appearance was a nice looking dark red/purple color. Quickly dissipating quarter finger's worth of white foamy and semi-fizzling head. There wasn't any lace.
The aroma spoke of tart and sour red cherries marginally seeking to claim a light sweet wood, super light green apples, red raspberries, then black raspberries. Light touch of smooth vinegar, the acidity level is soothing.
The flavor takes all of the prior mentioned aromas to intertwine in a refined sour and tart fashion to push a fine acidity level in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a level of acidity staking just enough claim to my tongue with some dryness. Carbonation felt fine. Acidic dry finish.
Overall, superb lambic featuring enough tart and sour qualities telling me that this is a beer never to pass up on when seen.
