Cask from the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours dark, cloudy brown with reddish tint. Frothy but slight beige head. Nose shows mild sour cherries, some lactic notes, Belgian sugars, and a pleasant metallic quality. Mild wood. Sweet and slightly creamy. Tastes similar with slight sourness. Not an assertive beer, but well balanced and very drinkable.
