The SpontanCherry is exactly what it sounds like: a spontaneous fermentation of a beer infused with cherries from the Frederiksdal plantation in Lolland, Denmark. The result is a complex, refreshing sour.
Review: The beer pours a deep purple color with a thin lacy head. It has aromas of funky brett, roasted nuts, and black cherries. It's completely dry and tart -- brightly so, but not bracing -- with rich cherries, toasty oak, and a nice hit of earthiness. The finish is long and lingering.
Bottom Line: Absolutely delicious. I think this could be a pleaser for sour fiends like myself and neophytes alike.
