jeremyh70 (707) - Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a dark purple/red beet color with a light mauve head with decent lacing. A moderate vinegar sourness in the aroma, along with fresh black cherries and some oak character. Taste is a combination of sour and sweet cherries with tannic oaky flavors and a slight underlying bit of funk. Finishes dry with lingering tartness. Mouthfeel is slick with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Moderately sour with big flavors of fresh cherry and oak. A really nice sour ale and change of pace.
