Notes / Commercial Description:
Tart Cherry is the fourth varietal in our Petite Sour series. This 5.5% ABV beer pours a rich red, with a snap of tartness from the addition of the equivalent of over a pound per gallon of sour cherries, after being primary fermented in oak with our mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria.

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.

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.
