Pours a clear, vibrant, burgundy colour. Smells like tart red cherries, fresh cherry, notes of lingonberry, and a little sour funk (very brett-y). Tastes tanic, juicy, ripe cherries, sour, oaky, and heavier-bodied than expected. Notes of juicy rose-hips.

Sour beer is not really my thing.

Love this every time I have it. Sour, sweet, tart, vinegar (in a good way), a little fizzy. I like everything it does.
