I am drinking a bottle brewed in 2008 and packaged in 2010.
L: foams up like champagne with a pink tinted cap that dissipates almost as soon as it forms. The hazy pinkish red liquid demonstrates it effervescence with as torrents of tiny bubbles rush to the surface, producing a continuous soft hiss.

S: Despite its age, which can diminish a fruit lambic's aromas, the cherries in this beer hit the nose from over 3 feet away. Closer up detects sour aromas, light funk, traces of wet horse blanket and a hint of red wine and oak.

T: Big, tart cherry flavors dominate the palate joined by traces of diacetyl, wheat, vanilla, and wine remind me of a fresh cherry tart. the flavors are intense, well balanced and complex.

F: The carbonation has some bight in this light, refreshing and highly effervescent beer.

O: as good as it gets
