Bottle into goblet-style wine glass. 2012 vintage.
A- Rich mahogany brown, one finger of tannish head dissipates quickly
S- funky yeast, wine, sour cherries, then some oak. Hint of malt. As it warmed, it was like Bourbon county with wine- noticeable oak.
T- Sour cherries against a brown ale- a little charred malt at the end. Then some weird funk. Leans toward high bitterness.
M- Really nice mouthfeel, very easy, smooth feeling.
O- For me the best part of this is the smell- quite good. I think the taste needs the most work- It doesn't stand up the smell in complexity. I would not buy again at the $18 a bottle price.

Pours a light reddish amber color with a white head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and sour and a bit oaky. Inviting and quality funky aroma. In the taste, nice acetic sourness and plenty of depth to it as well. A solid base beer is behind the sourness, with sugar plum, cherry and berry notes. This plays nicely with the oak and the sour. Everything is in good balance and the flavor really pops. Body is medium and semi dry with a lingering sour note. Overall, this is a really nice American Wild or Flanders Red. It kind of reminds me of a kriek lambic, not a surprise due to the Michigan cherries employed here. Good to savor every sip.
