Had the 2010 blended with Bing and Sour Pie cherries . What a great tart, sour, acidic beer. Reddish brown in color with a light off white head. This is a beer you need to try, lots of cherries and funk, my pallet is not refined enough to pick out what is going on, but it sure is tasty.

Pours dark red-brown with a thin tan head with some lacing. Aroma is of red wine, sour fruits, prunes, dark fruits, light funk, and light vinager. Taste is red wine, sour fruits, dark fruits, tart cherries, oak, light wet hay, light toasted malts, light leather, and light tobacco. Has a medium body with a pretty sour, dry, long, lingering. Overall, an excellent, world class sour brown.

Pours a beautiful red color, otherwise a nice red ale, light roasted malt notes, mostly though it straight up tastes like wine.
