maybe my least favorite of the cellar reserve beers in this round. not to say it isnt delicious because it certainly is, but less compelling than the others for sure. its pink tinted, and it looks a little flat. the brett and fruit almost cancel each other in the nose, rather than enhancing. the fruit is subtle in the taste, possibly underdone for my tastes, and the sourness i always loved in the base beer is largely absent. more of a cheesy funk to this than i remember in the base beer, less clean, less refined. the fruit comes out a bit more in the finish, tart cherry rather than ripe fruit, which gets lost a little in an already puckery brew. carbonation is better than it looks but still a little under done. its hard to be critical of a beer, and indeed a brewery that does such consistently awesome stuff, but this bottle has me wanting them to do something else. i am l'bretted out a bit, ready for a new recipe, not just a new fruit or a new barrel on an existing beer. keep evolving please.

Dark red and murky in complexion. There's a fingernail of beige around half of the rim. The aroma is of faint cherries. I'm tasting tart cherries with a hint of funk. This is not overwhelmingly tart. The mouth is acidic and moderately carbonated.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale reddish body. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Cherry. Lots of brett. Some oak and pale malt. The cherry really dominates.

Taste - Sour cherry. Quite sour. Grainy malt and a bit of pale malt. Oak. Cherry becomes jammy in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Quite tart. Astringent and oaky. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The cherry overwhelms a lot of what I like about the L'Brett Grand Cru.
