StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pre-release sample at Beverages4less homebrew tasting event. Pours a dark amber color with a small beige head. The aroma is overtly funky with tart fruits, vanilla and oak. The flavor, like the nose, showcases sour red fruits aged superbly in oak with a bit of cocoa at the end for added complexity . The palate is creamy and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering chocolates and cherries. Overall: Very tasty--a first rate sour.
