COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian Lambic aged in red wine barrels. Generous amounts of the tart montmorency cherry were added after 12 months of aging. Sour from lactic and acetic acids produced from special wild yeasts. A delicious tart, sour treat.

750ml bottle shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a dark ruby red with a light off white head, the aroma has a good amount of cherries with a little bit of funk and barnyard notes, the flavor has some of the barrel notes coming through on the front end with a really dry funky finish, probably from the red wine barrels, kind of different but nice.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 750ml bottle. Some BO in the aroma, something has gone quite odd there..maybe a splash of red wine vinegar. Nice tart cherry flavor, survives the suspect aroma. Really nice cherry tones, balanced sour/tart tones. Pitty, some dry tones. Quite a nice beer, a little outshined by the Lou Pepe before it. Refreshingly not test tube, but not quite nailing it.

Very cheesy, almost blue cheese, aromas - pretty unpleasant. Cherries come through as dry tannins, contributing more to mouthfeel than flavor. More cheese-funk and medicinal flavors. Not a fan.

obguthr (3451) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Slutfest 2013: Bouquet is cherry lifesavers and blue stilton. Rose colored, thick pink head. Tart roquefort and sweet cherry flavor with a subtle rustic twig finish. Not overly sour, powerfully funky, and decadent.

Emeister84 (767) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of flowers, raisins, and cherries. Hazy raspberry with low, off-white head. Sour and very earthy. Light body, decent carbonation, and an abrupt, funky finish.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle shared at Slutfest 4. Pours a clear vibrant red with a large creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sour cherries, mild citrus and a faint bit of caramel. The taste is grape tannins, cherries, tart finish. Medium bodied.

Chez monieux... Tap at brewery. Starts round and sweeter, and builds with lactic tartness, some fermentation by-products, and grainy notes. Bit of tannins linger with puckering tartness. Fun, though a bit rough around the edges. 3.4.

Bottle from dasilky. Notes of soured apples. Cherries. Touch of apple cider. Wet oak. Dry. Fine.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Huge aroma of sweaty sock, rotten vegetable. The flavor does not have any of the terrible aromas. The flavor is citrusy, cherry, oak, dusty. Tastes great but smells awful.

Ruby, clear, off-white head. Aroma of earthy cherry, sweaty-sock, some light fruit. Flavor of dry crackerlike malt, tart cherry, some biscuity notes, less sweaty sock/cheese in flavor than in aroma, some acidic sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
