Deep ruby red in appearance. Very cloudy in appearance with very little light getting through. A minimal bit of white foam only covers a fraction of the top of the beer. The aroma is of strongly tart cherries. The body is light,crisp,and a bit sticky. The flavor is strong of tart cherries with a long bitter fade.

Bottled on 10/26/13.

Pours translucent bright magenta with a 1/2 inch light pink head that quickly disappears completely and leaves almost no lace. Impressive.

Smell is of sour cherry, funky yeast and white grape.

Taste is of tart cherry, unripe dark fruit and a hint of vinegar.

Texture is light bodied with medium carbonation.

A very refreshing and delicious cherry lambic. Pleasantly tart. Outstanding.
