Barely dusts the surface with bright white foam, salmon pinkish orange hued liquid, the widely dispersed tiny bubbles laze about, clear with marginal haziness. Controlled sour funkiness to the nose, hay, meadow grasses, smells like it could give you hay fever, peppery and tarry, mostly honeydew melon, pear, apple fruit scents, the cherry not prominent, at times gets close to grilled meat fat, especially as it warms. Medium-bodied, presents a pleasing carbonated tickle and overall has a dry mouth feel. More clarity here to the cherry fruit, particularly as residue, mixing in notes of melon, pineapple to star fruit. Retains that hay, straw character, almost its signature. Yet, too clean to get very earthy or funky. Comes close to a cleansing Indian mukhwas sort of lift. A touch of raw pie dough at the end. Unfortunately, the finish is dilute and the flavors taper off prematurely. Pleasing in a outdoors summer sipper sort of way, but not for those who want noticeable intensity in their sour ale.

Bottle dated May 2018.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a glossy bright orange color. No head no matter how hard I poured and obviously no lace.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of red sweet cherries, fleshy and a nice whiff fluffy sweet orange pulp, light blend of lemon/lime character, melon/honeydew and a touch of white bread on the back end.
The flavor seems to take a countering turn towards the lemon/lime meshing to be up front. Cherries are still there but not necessarily so forthcoming as in the aroma. Light breadiness and a touch of white grapes. Aftertaste is candied cherries, lemon/lime sweetness, melon sweetness and smooth white bread.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Some sessionable traits try to come across. For a wild ale, the pucker factor is extremely tame. Sly stickiness crosses my tongue without being cloying.
Overall, a very nicely done dessert wild ale bringing in more than just cherries into the mix. Would love to have again.
