>> 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.

12 ounce bottle poured into a large wine glass. Pours a ruby red with a pink head of foam that fizzles out quickly. The arom has tart cherries, dry red wine, some wood. The taste is mildly acidic with more of a dry red wine taste than anything else. Dry and fruity cherry finish. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Exceptional beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @EurHop (Rome). Amazing cherry color, quite clear, with a medium head. Aroma of red sour fruits, lemon, oak, some cereals, very nice. Flavour is light acidic, cherry, lemon, dry in the end and a bit mineral, some astringency. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared thanks to sleepydave ! Pours a vibrant cherry red with a finger of pink foam. Nose is seductively cherry, with some vinous complexity and juicy pie filling aromas. Palate follows with huge cherry presence and light grain backdrop. You could tell me this was straight black cherry juice and I probably wouldn’t detect any alcohol and believe you. Smooth elegant and delicious !
