Shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice bright cherry pink clear hue with a thin head that leaves light wisps. 4.25

S - Aromas of wonderful sour cherries, great funk, soft vinous notes. Super aromatic and clean. Again, the cherries are great. 4.5

T - Taste is loads of cherries though more sweet than sour. Like a rich cherry pie filling, great great cherry notes with awesome, awesome fruit. The cherry is clean, one again the cherry over shines the beer, but atleast the cherry is huge. 4.5

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp and clean. 4.25

O - Overall this beer delivered what I hoped for. just not sour enough, still absolutely delicious though! 4.25

Thanks to rudzud.

Pours bright pink color, small head but lots of lacing.

Nose bigger cherry, tart balotin cherry, bright cherry and floral, mild saison funk, faint grainy malt base.

Taste starts with tons of balotin cherry, lots of tart cherry, little cherry cough syrupy but light, syrupy and semi sweet, thick cherry cough syrupy note as it goes, tart and mild funky but not much. Little grainy malt saison base but very light. Finish is dry but sticky, mild tart cherry with more cherry syrup like flavor, balotin cherry too, little funk but light.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb, little sticky and tart.

Overall pretty good but again not as good as I hoped... Nice balotin cherry but lost the saison funk and not very sour.
