4 oz draft pour at Churchkey. Poured a murky ruby-brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma ws notes of sweet fruits, sour cherries, wine notes, some vanilla woody notes. Flavor was not as funky, but retains a lot of that woody vanilla barrel character. Light tartness. Pretty tasty.

"A pleasant but unspectacular sour from a brewer I like quite a bit. Fruity and tart, not too sour. Floral too, with an odd herbalness more fitting to a saison. Quaffable and refreshing, though kind of a beginners sour. 2nd try in 2014 waaaay better. Oaky as hell, pretty sour. 3.5/4.1"
