Pours a surprisingly brownish ruddy color, with an also surprisingly robust tan head.
Smells like CHERRIES!!, and also some vinegar/vinous notes, a bit of .. oak/wood ... and a hint of MOAR CHERRIES!!
Cherries just make a completely natural addition to the base beer. The come across as mostly tart, but a hint of residual sweetness shines through and lightens up the wood/oak/slightly leathery/very vinous/vinegar base. Acetic tones really pop out and molest your tongue. Just very well blended given how complex it is, and the fruit is fresh and puckering.
Mouthfeel is thick, yet also effervescent.
Really a superlative beer.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a deep murky mahogany brown color. Some decent tan colored froth and lacing.
(S)- Huge aromas of tart cherries and slightly funky oak. Very cherry pie-like, only with the deep funk.
(T)- Again, very cherry pie-like. Big jammy cherries meets the funky oak. Great sour acidity.
(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. The cherries really bring on extra dimension to the base with that extra jammy sweetness.
(O)- I am already a big fan of the base beer, but the addition of cherries really adds an extra layer of complexity and dimension making this something really special.

4.25/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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
