Thanks to Matthew for sharing.

Ruby orange sunset body with a thin layer of tan head. The aroma is understated. The flavor is the same. Subtle notes of cherry, minimal funk, perhaps a hint of oak. Nothing is off, per se. However, the is bland and leaves me wanting.

On draft. Deep reddish brown with no head. some lacing. Hints of sour cherry and funk in the aroma. Similar flavor profile with medium to low lactic acidity present. Feels a bit thin. Overall enjoyable but nothing to write home about.

Poured from a bomber into a Grimm Ales glass. Fancy!

A: Pours a deep amber-brown with an off-white head that settles into a decent line that maintains and laces nicely throughout.

S: Some sour funk, notes of bread and woody tones. A touch of sour cherry aroma.

T: Some tart but smooth acidity, wild sour cherries and a little umami. Finishes clean and doesn't build much on the palate.

M: Nicely dry with a light carbonation. Sourness is only slightly puckering.

O: A nice, easy version of a Flemish sour. Easy drinking with subtle, earthy flavors. Cheers!

Very nice melange of colors in the glass;reds, yellows, browns, and oranges. Light cherry tartness on the nose. Very acidic up front with a lingering cherry finish.
