3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose askew with buttery, strawberry Campino notes at first, but a puckering, lambic cherry tartness teases out as the head dissipates. Pours burgundy with a fleeting, creamy pink-grey collar. Tart but manageable, with mellowing wafer and cream, and a fresh, acidic base of Drie Fonteinen-like Brie, tart funky cherry and mildew. Impressive. Could maybe just do with the wildness and yoghurt-like sour turning up a notch: the final impression is a little watery. Still, a pretty convincing, lambic-like sour cherry beer.
