Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of light funk, minerals, oak, lemon juice. Lfaovr similar, but not quite as well refined as some of the HF saisons. Best Ive had from them, which doesn’t say much.

Light-medium sweet with tart berries, currants, raisins, undertones of cocoa. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Nicely balanced in the finish, with more berry elements, raisins, blackberry. Really tasty stuff.

Bottle at the Side Project Cellar. Pours mostly clear, reddish brown with a frothy, light tan head. Dense tart cherry in the aroma, with hints of wood, cinnamon, faint toffee; it smells beautiful. Light sweet flavour with rich, true and lightly chewy tangy cherries, some wholegrain bread, impressions of cocoa perhaps, grape. Light to medium bodied with spritzy, massaging carbonation. Tart and refreshing, with further meaty cherry notes, moderate tartness, faint earth and wood, currants. Wow, superlative. The depth and balance of the cherry character is phenomenal.

Ok SP, you did good this time. Totally toned down the acidity and bumped up that mineral quality that I like so much. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aromas of lemon juice and crushed up chewable vitamins. Taste is medium high acidity. Not enamel stripping like other SP. Mineral taste. Nice.
