On tap at the brewery brewpub: 2015 version in July 2016.
Sour aroma with loads of black and sour cherries. Lovely red-brown body with a lasting off-white head. Moderate tartness. Less cherry in the taste than the aroma, although it’s not subtle in either. Nice complexity.

Overall: excellent version of the style.
