4.3/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a ruddy brown color with ruby-ish highlights. Some scattered tan bubbles and a minimal light tan head.

Smells slightly vinegar/vinous, with some dark fruits ... not really cherries, per se ... more like currants/blackberries mixed with wine. Interesting.

Tastes is more complex. Some cherry/vinous/red wine/vinegar notes, a bit of that lighter fruit (again: blackberries and/or currants come to mind), a bit of musty leathery funk ... kind of like they dropped an old saddle into the barrel along with some dusty cobwebs.

It isn't crazy sour. Nor is it crazy fruit-forward (is there any fruit in it? Not sure ... but there are a lot of fruit-notes.). I wouldn't say it's overly funky, though I was surprised that there was ANY funk in this style. It's pretty unique. It doesn't particularly remind me of rodenbach, or goudenband (it doesn't have that iconic "sweet/sour" flavor I often detect in flanders reds and oud bruins). Kind of a hybrid.

If there's a let down, it's the mouthfeel. It's light and thin, which is fine for a sour, but when they are this light I would like to see a bit more bubbling. I'm kicking myself for not giving this more time to carbonate.

Very good. Complex, quite drinkable, one of the best introductions to sours I could imagine as it is gentle and has some pleasant sweet berry notes to offset the leathery funky wine/vinegar sourness.
