375 mL bottle. Light reddish body. Smell is cherry and cereal grain. Taste is lightly sour. Cherry without being very distinct. Kinda sweet cereal finish. Medium body. Kinda boring for a cherry sour.

12.7 ounce bottle, label says 5.0% ABV, no dating on it that I noticed. Served in a teku, the beer pours a hazy reddish/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like tart cherries, funk, wood and bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some bubblegum and earthy flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and has a good amount of soft carbonation. It's also easy enough to drink. I thought this was good, but I wish this had a little more kick to it (with more fruit and tartness). Still worth a try if you've never had it before. $7.99 a bottle.

Look: Pale pink and slightly hazy. Reminds me very much of a dry rose wine. Love it

Smell: Some funk from the Brett very much Barnyard to me. I'd say its pretty subtle but then I can't really pick up much else on the nose.

Taste: The Brett is understated and not as funky as I was expecting based on smell. I does have nice acidity though I wouldn't necessarily describe this as tart. Cherry almost comes across as Strawberry. This one is really reminding me of a nice dry Grenache based Rose.

Feel: Medium Dry. No carbonation. Its a little thin but overall very pleasant for my preference.

Overall: Really interesting Wild that I feel had it been named anything but Tart Cherry probably gets a slightly higher rating from me. It just wasn't Tart or Cherry enough for me.
