TRVE Brewing Co. Meditation is the Practice of Death

What the brewers say

"Non-traditional spontaneous beer aged on Colorado tart cherries for six months in wine barrels."

What our panel thought

"Rich fruit character, though not distinctly cherry; also Brett, wood, and earth. Lack of head suggests wine. Oak character adds pleasant light spiciness, with fruit fermentation esters; tart, with berry notes. Subtle yet complex."

What our editors thought

"Beer-forward, not fruit-forward; light funk and faint cherry drive the nose. The sip morphs from an expectation of sweetness into an herbal funk with a hint of cherry. Acidity remains contrite."
