On tap at the Taphouse. In your face sour, readily apparent from the get-go. Pours out kind of dull and unexciting, but more than makes up for it in aroma and taste. Lots of fruit, notably plums, puckering tartness. Cottonmouth dry finish.

2014 bottle aged a year. Age helps this beer out a lot! I tried fresh and thought it fell a little flat. The tartness and cherry flavor come through stronger after a year. Good stuff

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. Has that nice lambic nose – tart. Lemony, slight barnyard, some cherry. Brilliant red tinted amber with a thin pinkish foam collar. Definite cherry lambic with a nice lemony tart finish small grass in the nose. Nicely done.
