On tap during the 43 Hours Of Sour at The Birch, Norfolk, VA. Reddish brown pour with virtually no head. Notes of grape and oak in the aroma. Red wine really comes forward in the taste and the oak makes its way forward as this warms a bit. An outstanding sour ale.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I finally got to try this. It is worthy of it’s awards. There are tart, sour and vinegar like. This one is big on the vinegar. You can really taste the wine and the barrel. Very earthy and woody. Tastes young and sharp.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark dark red, practically brown with a cream colored head. Aroma is dark fruits, lots of tart cherries, some nice funkiness and some oaky hints. Wow the first sip of this is crazy sour and funky, a blast of tart cherry and some plum, hints of oak, very dry puckery finish, a lot going on the flavor, and pleasantly sour for sure, would love to get another bottle for the cellar.
