Very nicely done.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this growler.
Pours and orange-amber with a white head. The beer looks about like iced tea. The aroma is nice and tart with some oak. The flavor is tart cherries, bourbon, vanilla and oak with a slight vinegar characteristic. Low carbonation and light mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(draught at brewpub) pours huge thick head, clear amber and nice lace. Nose of oak, light tart cherries, and vanilla. Taste nail polish, sour flavor to complement it. The bitterness takes away from this sour. I wish it was only slightly different and it could be much better.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours like the namesake. Aroma of nail polish remover and rubber cement. Tastes oddly similar with a bit of cherry. Finishes woody and dry, with a slight bourbon quality. Meh! Didn’t like this at all.
