This is a graham color with some cherry hues. Theres a solid sheet of light tan foam. Smells like cherries, oak .some grain, funk and metal. Tart, sharp, cherry, oak, water, bits of soil and musk come into the flavor. It’s a little watery and carries some one dimensional tartness that seems simple without the complexity I’d expect from a soured beer. Thin with light carb and a dry finish. This is interesting, hopefully there is a solera style coming out of the barrels allowing for further growth and complexity in subsequent batches.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep ruby/brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of cherries, some light oak, light tartness, some funkiness, light yeast, and dark and caramel malts. Flavor a great blend of everything. Average texture. A really good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Murky reddish brown pour. Lots of cherries. Sour and tart, but not overly so on either count. Quite delicious!

Sweet cherry flavor, mild acetic character, pretty easy to drink but not very complex or interesting. Thanks Randall, Zwanze Day 2013.

Pours a dark red/cherry colored with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is ripe with cherries over an acetic acid background. Taste is fruity but also has a definite (but restrained) vinegar character. Sour but not bracingly so. Body is light and mouthfeel is a little thin/watery. Moderate carbonation. Really nice and refreshing!
