This is a good beer. Aggressively sour and wild. Hollow on the midpalate. Feels thin, which makes the beer refreshing but not all that interesting.

tapefuzz (615) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Draught. Pours dark, dark red with a small pinkish-beige head. Aroma is cherries, vinegar, light oak, and light vanilla. Taste is sour cherries, some vinegar, oak, and a little spice. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Too much vinegar and it could definitely use more spice (or even oakiness) for balance. I definitely wouldn’t want a whole bottle of this, but in a 6oz pour it is good.
