Bottle shared by madbeerbaron. Thanks ben. Pours brown with an almost khaki head. Aroma is slightly sour and a little fruity. Fermented black cherry with some grape skin. Taste is light tart. A little vinegar and red wine barrel with some nice Michigan cherry and a strong sweet malt backbone. Pretty darn good.

Dark red pour from 22oz bottle from trade. Very sweet and wine like taste, dry finish. Dried cherries and sweet fruity happiness. Not bad. Just getting into sours and this isn’t my favorite but it is enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown body over a massive tan head that showed no sign of depletion. Sticky clumps of lacing on the glass. Sour vinegar nose. The flavor is unexpected: more sour yeast, subtle spices like cinnamon & nutmeg, sour apples, and finished with an indescribable herbal note. Soft carbonation and medium body. Interesting brew to say the least.
