phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2012
750 ml bottle from JCB- thanks again, J! Bottle 2/230. Bottled 12/2010, released 3/15/11. Pours a hazy brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of tart cherries, balsamic vinegar, oaky funk, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and plum. Flavor is more sour and not as sweet, though the caramel and vanilla and brown sugar are there. Tart fruits, oak, yogurt, vinegar. Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, and a tart, funky mouthfeel. Really good sour.
