Pours red with a finger of pink foam that retains well. Aroma is cherry, with light cereal grains and wheat behind. Flavor profile is driven, controlled, and maintained by cherry, which has a light tartness to it. Beneath the cherries is wheat. It carries a light sourness. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a smooth feel that is only slightly more grainy than the base lambic. Overall, it's very focused and controlled on one thing (cherries), which other may consider one-dimensional. Regardless, it's well prepared and crafted and very enjoyable.

Reviewed from notes.

Genuinely one of my favourite sours ever and the 2018 has so much cherry up front! Despite its propensity for aging this beer having it immediately offers up a different beast. Tart cherry and a hint of residual sweetness. Moderate carb and sourness just delicious

Pours cloudy strawberry/raspberry color with a 1-2 finger thick pink foamy head that faded slowly and left minimal spotty lacing.

Smells of tart green apple, raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb, red wine, brett, funky yeast, lots of fruit like a fruit salad, barnyard funk, musty notes and a lot of earthy/oaky notes. Incredibly complex and nice to inhale.

Like the nose the flavor is full of fruit and then tart, bitter, funky and sweet all at the same time. The additions of pear, light grapefruit, cherries and white grapes bring out even more depth to go along with the green apple, raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb, red wine, brett, funky yeast, roasted grains, wet horse hair and earthy flavors like sipping white mixed with light oaky notes. Subtle, funky, very fruity and extremely complex, this is a fine sipping brew that was refreshing and very enjoyable.

Pours a deep red coloration with a small, fizzy, pink head. Smells wonderfully of tart, ripe cherries and hints of estery spice. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by a rich flavor of fresh, ripe, tart red cherries with hints of citrus, oak, and spice. Finishes with a medium sourness and a bit of acidity coming through in the aftertaste. Light/medium body with medium/lively carbonation. I've had this quite fresh (6 weeks from bottling) and I feel that this really comes through in a very fresh and fruity, almost juicy cherry aroma and flavor. However, on the other hand, there really isn't that much complexity to this. Still, a great balance of sourness and sweetness, with a very rich fruity character. Mouthfeel/body could be better though.
