From notes. Had at a tasting at Abu and Ashleys on December 15. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a hazy coppery orange with a small egg shell colored head that fades pretty quickly. The aroma is really nice. There is a lot of cherry and wine. A good grape skin and lots of oak bring up the back end. The flavor is much of the same. There is a pretty hefty wine barrel. A decent amount of dark stone fruit and nice winey sourness just rings through. The balance is excellent. The mouth feel is a little light, with a nice bright carbonation and a lingeringly fruity and wine heavy finish. Its not dry, which is a good thing. This is a pretty decent sour.

Bottle shared, thanks Jay. Nice sour cherry candy with pleasant oak notes and a dry finish. The Merlot barrels definitely add some yummy grape notes and complexity to this solid red sour.

Bottle shared. Thanks Jay! Pours a cloudy ruby copper with a small head that dissipates. Huge cherry-forward nose with vanilla and oak notes. Wonderful tannic red wine notes on the palate with more oak. Cherry on the finish with a slight tannic burn. Very nice.

Color is almost v8 juice red. Aroma is of raspberries and hints of red wine. Taste is of raspberries. Sour and light. Carbonation is light and adds to fruit aromas and taste. Mouthfeel is medium. Definitely lingers a bit. Quite good. *bomber into plastic cup. YOLO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
