4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of Ron
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy sweet and lightly tart cherry with light lemon and some light funky notes. It pours a a dull pinkish-orange with a small pinkish-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet cherries. The finish quickly turns to moderate-heavy lemon, light oak, and tart cherry.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: thanks, Ron! Muddled orange & amber with a quickly fizzling white head. Aroma is tart & lactic forward. Sour lemons, cherries, light apple, with a mild vinous & slight oak character backing it all up. Faint sweat sock funk in the finish. Taste is sour lacto without much burning acidity at all. Light tart cherries & some sour lemon flesh. A touch of oak & a biting, slight tartness in the finish. Not much funk in the flavor, this one is mostly just tart. Dry finish, very nice stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle: It opened with a nice "pop". This one pours a red tinged golden color. There was really no head on it and no lacing. Definitely a musty/funky aroma. Some cherry in there too. Interesting taste. Just a bit of the cherry, which gets lost in a sour somewhat lemony citrus taste. Maybe some spices, but they are subdued. A very complex brew. Smooth going down. I’m glad I bought 2.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Pours pale pink with a ring of white head. Nose has lots of sweetness, gentle tartness, with bright cherry. Lovely. Taste has some light plastic and leather, with a gentle SweetTart tartness, cherry pie, and light mineral and yogurt. Fizzy and effervescent, with a light body. Very, very tasty.
