[Tap] Deep garnet colored pour without too much of a head. Tart cherry, vanilla, grapes, mild sourness in the aroma. More of the same in the taste.

Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma was some light, sweet and tart fruit notes, dark pitted fruits, some grape notes. Flavor was some light wine character, a little bit of tartness, not too sweet. Pretty easy to drink. Was hoping for a bit more tart funk, but not bad.
