3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Pours a murky reddish-brown body with a spare white head. Nose of cherry and oak. Flavor of oak barrel, sour cherries, and earthiness with a dry finish. The oak over powers rather than complementing this flemish sour, thus weakening the flavor of the wild yeast and bacteria.
