Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Chris. Dark amber color pour with an off-white head. Aroma is quite sour and fruity. Some red wine vinegar, cherry, and Jolly Rancher. Lots of apple and lemon. Some caramel, too. Flavor has a subtle nuttiness which is kind of weird with the intense sourness. Lots of acetic and lactic character to this. Fruity cherry and Jolly Rancher. Some carame, oak, and lots of green apple.
