Bright garnet with a soft, thick pink blanket.

Smell is toasted cinnamon, marzipan, dark cherry.

Taste is thick, plump, juicy dark cocktail cherry with cinnamon, marzipan and toasted cracker.

Very dry finish, but soft mid palate.

I think I've pinned down my favorite flavor profile for this style. Whatever Drie Fonteinen, Cantillon, and Jester King are doing with their cherry sours, it's resulting in a very similar outcome--a very successful one at that. Few people can do this right, and 3F is one of them.
