On tap at RealTail 2012. Pours a cloudy amber with a small creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is vinegar sour fruit and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a strong tart and light malt and funk. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well, a very good sour ale from Freetail.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. brown bottle purchased at the brewpub. Poured into a tulip. It looks dark brown as it pours and almost black in the glass. Aroma has cherries(a lot), a little lemon, and some vinegar but not much. A really good aroma. The taste is strongly acidic in a vinegar sort of way, cherries, and what seems like a wine barrel character. An acetic forward sour. It almost burns at the back of the throat. The taste is a definite dropdown from the aroma. Not really my cup of tea or I mean glass of beer
