[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a hazy brownish orange with a small (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that receded down to a very small collar with super light spotty lacing.
The aroma was of grain and bread malts and a funky cheesy yeast with a note of fruit (apple, cherry and apricot), a light spiciness, a mild vinous scent, a hint of oak and a definite tartness.
The taste started off sour and acetic with a light wine presence which lasted throughout with the finish mellowing slightly, having a mildly sweet fruity taste along with a light spiciness towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long time following the swallow, with the bold sourness giving way to a mildly sweet-tart fruity taste that lingered on the taste buds for a while longer.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and dry in texture with a solid medium carbonation.
Overall this was a very tasty and enjoyable brew that possessed a nice tart flavor which blended so well with the fruity spicy taste, that it allowed for a smooth and easy drinkability. I have to say that there is no surprise here, just another exceptional beer from this brewer...

Bottled on November 1st, 2013 - Served at 45 degrees F in Bruery tulip glass.
A - Cloudy red/orange body with ~1.5" off white head.
S - Very sour, cherries, white wine
T - Tart cherries, grapes, slight oak & rye - sweet finish.
M - Champagne bubbles - lots of tingle
O - Good sour, but not my favorite from the Bruery. I think I should have kept this in the cellar a bit longer to let the tartness mellow and the other flavors develop. Prost!
