Labeled Batch No. 4 on the bottle
A: A somewhat dark copper with deep ruby highlights. The persistent, light tan head is made of thin layer of rocky bubble that settle into a thick ring around the edge of the glass.
S: A medium aroma of red currents, tart cherries and sharp tartness. Some oak supports the fruit bring cinnamon and some vanilla to the mix. A moderate funk on the cleaner, more presentable side of the Brett aroma. The is a low spice and herbal note as well which is hard to tell of that's the yeast or hops bringing the spice.
T: The taste matches the nose so well; again with a medium aroma of red currents, more of a tannic red grape and sharp tartness. Oak also provides a supports the fruit bringing medium vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. The spice and herbal note is a bit strong in the flavor being about medium-low level. The balance is pretty tart with a moderate sweetness in the middle but a an off dry finish. Followed up with a quick currents and dried cherry aftertaste.
M: A medium bodied beer with a medium level of carbonation.
O: A fruity beer with a great sweet-tart balance and some oak character. Pairs very nicely with food, probably a great compliment to a rich meal. An excellent sour beer that is well worth seeking out should you enjoy yous beer a bit on the tart side. It's not so tart as to be out of line and is well worth consideration as a classic example of the style.
