First had: on tap at CBC

A sour/wild ale that really hit the spot. Opaque brownish-maroon pour, looking more like a porter than anything, with a thin layer of bubbles on top that all but disappeared after a few minutes. Vinous aroma, red wine and cherries, lots of oak, brown sugar and burnt caramel. Taste was sour and musty up front, good dose of red wine, sour cherries, light acetic acid, earthy and oaky mid-palate, finishing with dark caramel malts and a well-defined flavor of bittersweet chocolate. Nice and quite complex overall, medium-full body, tart but not too tart, mouthfeel smooth at times, acidic at others.
