4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared at Churchkey. Thanks everyone! Amazing beer.... (can I stop my review right there). Anyway... Poured a beautiful looking dark orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma was notes of wonderful funk - touch of balsamic, citrus and stone fruits. Nectarines, plum, apricot - with some acidic grapefruit character. Flavor had all those wonderful notes - tartness that hit all the right spots in the mouth, plenty of tangerine, light mango character - seriously, probably the best beer I’ve had this year.

Nice cherry bretta lambic tasting thing. Finishes with a nice sour bite with lots of bretta and some sweetness from cherry. Cherry is pretty substantial here actually. Pours red with good head and lacing. Bottle at Churchkey thanks to Radagast, Travlr or Jack or someone. Great!
