Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Red Session. Ruby pink color. Aroma is fruity and a bit funky with lots of berry notes. Taste is tart, refreshing and fruity with berries and fruit pits flavors.

Bottled 08-18-2017

L- The beer pours a hazy plum color with almost no head formation. What little there is reduces to a thin ring. There is no lacing
S- The nose is a strong sour cherry component over the top of a musty funk from the Brett.
T- Like the nose the sour cherries are the dominant component. The brett funk makes it's appearance at the tail end of the palate and helps the beer to finish somewhat dry.
M- Overall mouthfeel is medium. There is very little carbonation left in the beer. I suspect that isn't typical and a problem of this bottle.
O- With proper carbonation this beer would be a joy to drink for those into brett or sour cherries. This bottle was lacking in that department and suffered some. I'll revisit in the future to see if I can get a properly carbed bottle.

750ml bottle poured into fluted snifter.

Pour is colored like bing cherry juice. Maroon and mostly clear. Pink foamy head pops itself out fast and leaves a tiny ring around the glass.

Aroma is bright cherry juice, sweet and tart.

The flavor is cherry. Sweet cherries, tart cherries and a hint of background funk and grass. A crisp and clean flavored brew.

Moderate carbonation comes through a bit effervescent and lighter bodied.

I think this tasted and looked fantastic. Refined and layered flavors.
