Bottle at Proletariat with Linh and Scarlett. Pours a deep dark reddish brown body with no head - light off color lacing. Aroma is super oaky, light cherry and faint vinegar. Mouthfeel is light with a soft, mellow tartness and notes of oak and cherry. A grape candy character is revealed as it warms. Nice.

Thanks to Westmeister for opening this. Dark brown pour with a light brown and quickly dissipating head. Nice tartness and just the right amount to pucker up but not make you wince. Wild yeast aromas, hay, grass, with a bit of the sourness in the nose as well. Light red fruit flavors. Smooth nice and and tart on the finish.

Bottle shared with EricTeusink and jrob21. Pours dark brown with minimal beige head. Taste was big barrel influence, lots of tart cherries and blackberries. Tartness was certainly but tamer than most. Really nice sour red.

Pretty good sour brown but it may have suffered having just had Prolegomena before it. Aroma is sulfur, cherries, vinegar, and caramel. Taste is very very tart almost like apple cider vinegar. Finish has a touch of caramelly sweetness.
