Only 7 barrels-I would have done a growler. Peach colour with active little white head, lace in glass. Yeasty aroma. Smooth lambiclike, well balanced, long finish. Creaminess from wheat, fruit tartness from cherries.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 The Lure:
Sweet fruitiness of cherries and orange zest sitting surrounded by decorative lacing. Not enough signs of the interior wilderness, either there isn’t enough brett, or it hasn’t had time to develop yet.

The Festivities:
Hushed wilderness touches the cherries, peaches, and curaçao(?). Wheat malt tartness matches that of the yeast’s, but it still doesn’t reach the intensity levels I would have desired. Low carbonation imparts a classy feel, but all in all it is much sweeter than what I would have expected in a bretty ale. This still remains a beautiful creation, don’t get me wrong.

Encouragement will nurse future leaps.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear ruby red with a thin white head that dissipated completely. Aroma was full of fresh cherries that were mainly sweet but there was a bit of a tart bite. Flavor was similar with juicy sweet cherries throughout with a bit of tartness that grew. Didn’t pick up much brett at all.

On tap at the Blind Tiger. Pours a clear ruby red with not much of a head, but a thin white head appears with agitation. Toast and pomegranate on the nose. Smells a bit like grenadine syrup. Sweet, cloying and weird. Toast, light sourness. Dry acid and vinyl flavors. Long toast and yeast on the finish.

En fût. Verre de dégustation dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de cerises avec une pointe de cannelle. Apparence: La couleur est rouge légèrement voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de cerises légèrement sûrettes mais sucrées avec une pointe de vanille. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement vineuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de cerises en arrière goût. (Rating #2959)
