Pours a brownish red. Almost zero sense of carbonation. The slightest bit of lacing stays up on the walls of the glass. No head at all. Well....the color is nice enough I guess.

Smell is very pleasant. Tart cherry juice, a little funk, a bit of that sour lacto smell, and a bit of generic dark fruit.

Taste is very in line with the smell. Finishes with a sharp sour bite but never becomes overpowering. Integrates a sense of fruit with the sourness as well as any sour I can think of off hand. Never comes close to being sweet, mind you, but there are fruit notes all over the place here. A great tasting sour.

Mouthfeel is pretty solid despite the seeming lack of carbonation. Drinks a bit more carbonated than it looks, but this is still a very "slick" beer. None the less, the mouthfeel works well with the taste profile.

Overall this is one of the better sours i've had in terms of taste profile. It could use a little more carb, but that ultimately doesn't detract too much from it. A lot of fun and easy to drink. A very unabrasive sour (though admittedly I wonder how much of that is just my palate adjusting to sours over the years).

So this one the second one I tried.

It seems to have balanced out very well and seems that it would only get better. I could have swore the carb increased in the bottle since its release but not by that much.

A really good combo of fruit and sour. Posted this mostly because I think it has improved since bottling.

Shared with JLindros 2013 Vintage

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a dark dark brown almost black hue with a thin blanket that leaves a thin halo and awesome legs 4.25 (X .05 = .213)

S - Aromas of awesome rum notes without being boozy. Really nice sour brown notes, good cherries too. Lighter chocolate and darker malts, super aromatic. 4.5 (x .2 = .9)

T - Taste is similar to the nose, really good sour brown and cherries, loads of subtleties. The wine is awesome and is accented incredibly by the rum. This is simply delicious. The booze is hidden well, lightly flemmy. Incredibly smooth and balanced. Wow. 4.75 (x .45 = 2.138)

M - Mouthfeel is very nicely tart and sour, great softer carbonation, alcohol hidden well. 4.5 (x .1 = .45)

O - Overall this beer was just incredibly good. Awesome nose and taste that just popped with barrel and rum and sour cherry. Simply delicious 4.5 (x .2 = .9)
