Appearance is a blend of hazy orange, red and brown with a candy hue. Finger of head after a moderate pour. Head remains throughout the majority of the drink and leaves a few lace lines on the glass. Intense acidic aroma, mostly berries. Nice touch of oak in the nose as well. Flavor begins with a heavy dose of acetic acid imparting berry, vinegar and cider notes. Just a hint of sweetness and cherry flavor mid drink. Finishes dry with a gentle touch of wine and oak to mellow out the flavor. Medium body and bone-dry feel with ample carbonation. Perfect mouthfeel. I don't even know where to begin with this beer. It seems that every big purchase I make on a new sour ale turns into a home run and this one is a grand slam! So much depth and complexity yet super well balanced and easy to drink. Just an all around stellar beer!
