Bottle from craft beer cellar A: red wine, cherries, red fruits, woody app: hazy copper sparing white head t/p: med body with long acidic finish. Moderate carbonation. Salty. O: really enjoyed it. The barrel aging is easily perceived with the nice fruitiness it makes for a complex beer. The sourness is intense right to my taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bit reddish, on a second look more like copper. Some white foam, not much though. Aroma is quite sour and acidic, you can feel some cherries if you dig deep. Taste is quite straight on sour and acidic. If you let it settle it becomes more approachable, you get some cherry and cherrytree peels. Pretty sour overall, lingering sticky sourness in the end. Nice experience.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a slight hazy burnt orange to burnt red color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipated and left no lacing.
The smell started off with sour and tart cherries invading some light citrus and a light malty background.
The taste was mostly the same as the aroma. Tart and sour cherries roll into sour to bitter citrus rind all rolling about and feeling out the aftertaste with a sly sour and dry feel in the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation feels good and right at par for the AWA style. Nice bitter harshness pounds on my tongue, but not overbearing.
Overall, as an AWA, it works, hmmmm, as a Sour Red/Brown ale, I’d say I guess it works.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark golden, soft ringed head. Nose is peppery sweet, soft creamy cherry. Initial taste is tart, rich sook of sharp citrus and creamy cherry coming through. Carbonation is soft enough and a clean tart punch on a mouthfeel. Finishes clean enough, rich vibrant tart white berry.
