Pours a deep red amber with no head. Looks very flat. Aromas of sour dark fruit. Taste is tart and semi dry. Flavors of oak, funky bacteria, dark fruit, a touch of booze. Mouthfeel is thin and it is nearly flat. Easily chuggable. Finishes with a slight pucker but honestly, it could be more complex.

Serving: 22 oz. bottle. Medium to dark brown pour. Interesting nose of wood, funk, and berries. Plenty of funk in the flavor with notes of brett, red wine vinegar, wood, and berries. It reminded me of a mix of an Flanders brown and Flanders red in some ways. Interesting and tasty.
