I can definitely notice the house flavor here. This is the base of the caractere rouge. Sour with some plum and grape raisin flavors. Sweetness at the end is surprising. Great middle ground of sour and normal beer. Barrel tannins adds a depth to the tongue feel abd are more noticeable in the nose

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep purple/mahogany pour with ring of offwhite on top. Funky sweet aroma: leather tannins, tart cherry, barnyard funk or fur, fragrant wood. Low cabronation, tingly mouthfeel with a medium body/viscosity, very clean finish. Tart flavor ofcherries and possible berries, pert funk, a bit of weathered wood and faint leather too. Really well done sour beer that’s lighter bodied and not too tart.
