3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Matt’s; 5.9% ABV
Bright blood and ruby color with pinkish color. Very nice aroma, lively, some cherry, but the mild acidity creates a berry impression. Dry, tart, light cherry flavor, but weak; light final astringency.
Simpler than expected; very nice aroma, but lacking in flavor.

Draught, 5.8% at the brewpub. Subtle cherry sauce aroma. Hazy deep red colour. Very small white head. The flavour is nicely citric, does not taste much of fruit, but is balanced well by it. Dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bar Volo DDC tap takeover, this is the cherry version. The cherry comes through like cherry kriek. Its acidic, it gives off a big cherry (natural and artificial) aroma.Whatever wheat is in the secondary. A little lemon tartness as well. Very good and unique, but only drinkable in modest amounts at a time.

>> Thank you Kevin for this treat! Solstice d’été cerise. Pours a deep, clear, inky purple with pink foam. Nose is rhubarb pie, rich cherry pie, clafoutis, huge depth of cranberry and blackberry. Taste is rich cherry, high tartness, light lasting acid. Zippy, seedy, bright. No saltiness, soapiness, or slick milk dairy. No high citric enamel ripping acid either. Long acidic finish. Highly enjoyable.
