Green Flash Brewing Company Cellar 3 Natura Morta Cherry

What the brewers say

“This refined evolution of our Belgian-style saison is foeder-fermented with Brettanomyces, then aged and re-fermented in red wine barrels with sweet, dark cherry puree. After six months, a crimson ale with champagne effervescence is released, offering notes of ripe stone fruit and barrel-drawn tannins. Retaining hints of earthy wild yeast, Natura Morta Cherry finishes like a fine Beaujolais.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderately earthy with sharp Brett and a mild oak note. Light cherry and over-ripened pineapple with some buttery notes, a touch of acidity, and a nice complexity.”

Flavor: “Moderately strong cherry tartness with a touch of bitterness, light acidity, and vanilla. The aftertaste is strong cherry with a touch of tannin. The distinct sharpness highlights the cherry tartness and keeps it dry.”

Overall: “The cherry comes through pleasantly, enhanced by vanilla, giving it a cherry-pie flavor. The sharp Brett was enjoyable, and is enhanced by the muted oak.”
