Cloudy red pour. Thin head. Aroma of glue and fruit. Medium mouth that is tart and sour in taste. Taste is full of sour cherries. Some fruity bread notes. Refreshing and not overly funky.

Way too sweet. Very little in the nose. On the palate it comes through very sugary sweet with a cherry flavor. Not complex. Not tart. Not great.

Pours a dark burgundy with an off white head. Smells tart with some funk and yeast. Taste is sweet chewy cherry with mild tart finish. Not over powering, but a little light in flavor.

Absolutely incredible beer. Poured in a tulip glass at the Map Room on draft. Has a vinegar taste that doesn’t overwhelm. Definitely a balsamic thing going on, a nice sweet balance though. A delicous red/brown sour ale.
