Pours hazy amber red with a decent off-white head. Aroma is tart fruit, grape juice, vinegar, oak, funk. Taste is initially sweet fruit and oak with vinegar and the perfect amount of tart funk hitting later and lasting nicely in the finish. Perfectly balanced and easy drinking with alcohol well-hidden. great beer, got better as it sat open awhile.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Pours cloudy hazelnut amber with a medium beige head and nice lacing. Very pleasant aroma of tart cherry, caramel, wine & wood, funk and a bit of cheese. Flavor about the same with medium sweetness and light tartness. Medium bodied and very well masked ABV - really sneaks up on you. Not a full blown lip-puckering sour, but a very pleasant balance actually.
