Bottlepoured a clear dark redish brown with a lasting tan head and great lacing. Aroma of sour citrus, grapes, oak, barnyard and light carmel. Palae was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of grapes, sour citrus, barnyard funk and ligjt carmel with a crisp dry tart lingering funky vinous finish.

Bottle @ home. Dark brown-black appearance with a foamy, brown head. Mildly vinous, mild to moderate cherry, roasty dark malty, slightly tart-sour, mild chocolate aroma. The aroma is nice but not super assertive. Big cherry (almost pie-like), slightly roasty, dark malty flavor followed by an intense, acetic, vinous sourness that finishes with a nice, sour cherry tartness. Even though the appearance implies a darker malty flavor, the cherries and huge sourness as well as the woody, wine elements really mask some of those characteristics. Big dry, tart aftertaste. I was a touch disappointed by the aroma but the flavor is quite nice. A very nice beer on par with Eremita I but I prefer Meretrix and Dépuceleuse slightly better.

12oz bottle picked up at the release party. A surprising dark cola brown pour with a one inch foamy head. Great carbonation straight out. Produced a nose of dark, sweet fruits and cherries. Warned it would be sour. I found it more tart than typical for a wild ale but pleasingly balanced and delicious. The time spent in vinfandel barrels adds a sweetness to knock down the mouthpuckering sharpness that slaps you up front, leaving a refreshing finish overall. Nice job by the gang at Avery..
