4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Churchillís. Slightly hazed amber pour with a thin layer of off-white foam. Smells like strawberry jam, raspberry, and red wine. Slightly acetic and an overall enjoyable tartness. Mildly funky as well. The flavor has a good fruity sweetness and tons of berry jam. Sour red wine vinegar, some fruit leather, and a bit of lemon juice. Lots of lemon, dark fruits, and oak. Nice stuff.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Churchillís Pub ][ $2 ][ Tasting Flute ][ 3.7.15 ]
>> Hazy amber red pour with weak foam. Nose is saltwater, cranberry, red wine, mineral/slate. Taste is solid oud bruin: salt brine, red wine barrel, cranberry, leathery dark fruit, huge lemon/citric acid. Lighter bodied, minerally bite. Clean, simple dark sour that could use a little fresh beer reblended to even out the sourness.
