Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks, Justin. Dark amber pour with a khaki head. Nose is kind of fruity and has a nice berry note to it. Sweet plum, some red wine, mild vinegar, and caramel. Hint of dates, too. Flavor has a decent balance of sweet and sour to it. Fairly heavy on sweet date, berry, and caramel. Somewhat acetic, but a lot of green apple sourness as well.

Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted complex sour flavor with a medium to heavy complex sour finish of moderate to long duration.
