I was really looking forward to cracking open this classic, and was not disappointed. If you like sour (as I do!), then this is the beer for you!
Appearance was reddish with fairly little white head, and appealing.
Aroma is sour, sour, sour, as is the flavor. Taste was a bit like good vinegar, and distinctly sour. As it warmed, it was very wine-y, like a chardonnay.
Mouthfeel and drinkability were both good. Thus far, the highlight of my beer drinking day.

Pours a copper/red color with a tan head. Aroma is sour of cherries, oak, and a hint of some floral notes. Flavor is tart of cherries and has an oaky flavor to finish. The cherry and oak blend together nicely for a lingering flavor. A decent brew.
