Opaque brown/reddish draft pour with off white foam. Sour cherry nose. Red wine and sour cherries with a little funk from yeast. Medium mouthfeel, tongue is bathed in tart funky fruit. This is simply terrific.

By far my favorite lambic. Very sweet and acidic. Caramel in color, lightly carbonated, and very sippable.

Wow. What a fantastic beer. Enjoyed with a salmon salad lunch, and this was by far the star of the show. Immediately, the ruby color had me excited. Normally I am not a fan of sour beers, this was traded to me. Wine was strong on the nose, great smell. Tasted and felt amazing. Absolutely does not drink like 10%, very well crafted. I will always be searching this beer out.
