This Sour Ale with cherry puree certainly has both of those elements in the aroma -- with lots of tart cherry providing a large sour note, providing a pleasant sweet and sour nose. In the glass, it’s a hazy light amber with a pinkish hue. The flavor is much more one-dimensional: A dominant lactic sourness pushes the cherry component so far into the background that it's close to indistinguishable. The barrel-aging, along with the addition of Brettanomyces, add a measure of complexity but the lactic sourness dominates the flavor, and it is close to being too much for anyone other than serious sour beer aficionados.
