On tap at Sour Fest. Pours a red-brown with a tiny white head. The aroma is fruity sour notes, light red wine. The flavor is nice and easy to drink; akin to a Flemish Sour, vinous, caramel, lots of tart fruits. I liked this one.

Draft at Naked City. Pours a dark mahogany ruby brown with a very even and small tightly carbonated off white head. Nose is slghtly tart an lactic yet more forward on the red wine and light green apple notes. Medium body with tight creamy carbonation...very smooth feel. Tart cherry and cab wine notes, some cola and hints of cinnamon/sugar...good amount of tannins and has some Consecration like qualities.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is full of red wine barrel, some green apple, band aid, soft lactic notes, softer fruity undertones. Pours darker brown/red pour, not much in the way of head or lace. Tart, jammy, red winey notes, band aid, soft funk, lactic tartness, light alcohol, sharp tartness lingers. Red wine tannin dry mouthfeel, almost creamy mouthfeel. Good effort for sure.
