I have found a new love for sour beer and beers like this are why. Sour,sour and more sour. I think the red wine barrel aging is why you get the oak and fruit flavors. Over all just great beer.

Draft pour at Brouwers Cafe as part of the sour fest. Pours a dark ruby red color with a thin ring head. Sour cherry and mixed berry aroma. Flavor is much of the same with a nice oaky background. Can’t go wrong here. Great stuff.
