Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.
Pours a nice dark murky brown with a light cream colored thin yet dense head. Gorgeous tight bubbles form a nice cake that recedes pretty quickly down to a nice ring around the glass.
Aroma is amazing. Notes of sour balsamic vinegar. Notes of leather and tart apple skin in the nose. Some mild smoky tobacco notes are in the nose as well. Great sour cherry notes in the middle that carry all the way towards the end. Chalky tartness with a mild fruit/sugary sweetness in the nose.
Flavor starts off with strong sharp tart notes. Balsamic vinegar notes are intense and really hit the palette hard. Notes of leather and some slight wood funk are present. There is a nice yeasty note mixed in with the sourness. The sourness starts of vinegary but turns into more of a cherry and sour apple skin throughout the middle. There are some slight sugary sweet notes on the middle and back end that compliment the leathery and woody notes. The finish is tart and dry and as it warms some woody and mild vanilla notes can be noted along with the increasing weather. Carbonation is great and cleans the palette for more sips.
Overall. This brew is outstanding. Nice notes of vinegar and sour cherry notes mixed in with woody funk notes and a nice medium-loght body.

4.25/5 rDev -4.1%

Appearance - Dark brown with reddish hues. head quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing at all
Smell - I am getting ready to pucker up as this one just smells tart. Oak and fruit in the end of this beer after the funk leaves
Taste - Goes hand in hand with the smell as this one is quicker a pucker you lips kind of beer. As it warms up the cherries come out a bit more. I get a little oaky flavor as well.
Mouthfeel - Not overly carbonated, but very smooth as it leaves your mouth
Overall - Really glad I got this one in a trade. Wow was it a great flemish
