I had this on-tap during the event this weekend at Jackie O's. Poured into a sample glass.
Appearance: Pours a reddish brown with a layer of cream off white head that fades to a layer on top of the beer.
Smell: Sour vinegar with some tart red wine notes. The is a mildly nutty sweetness from the malt.
Taste: Sour vinegar and red wine show up as they did in the smell. I'm picking up some maple syrup, and enjoying it. The finish is tart and funky.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly smooth carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: The maple and sour notes went together quite well. I never would have thought of it, but it wasn't mind blowing either. I would have this one again.
