Review from notes. Had this at a Pittsburgh tasting a bit ago.
750ml bottle split and poured into a Stone taster.
A - Pours a ruddy brown with an orange sunburst around the edges. There's a noticeable amount of sediment floating around within the beer, giving it a cloudy haze. Not a whole lot of head, about about a half-finger of tan foam, with low retention. Not much lacing as well, besides some rogue bubbles hanging on here and there.
S - Even before the glass reaches my nose, I get a strong, sour acidity. Yep, it smells pretty damn sour. A mild amount of grape, but definitely chock full of cherry, from the pit to the skin, all the while being nice and tart. There's a slight hint of vinegar as well, but not to the extent of something like Duchesse.
T - The taste is definitely sour all of the way through. Although, this is somewhat mitigated by a decent caramel malt influence. Again, the main flavor here is inspired by the tart cherries, and this tartness lasts for a long time. Rounding out the flavors are some green apples, grapes, and a pinch of vanilla and oak.
M - Mouthfeel is medium- to full-bodied with carbonation a touch on the low side. It has tartness for days and definitely does pucker the lips and sides of the cheeks. A bit dry as well.
D/O - Drinkability is high. Very solid flavors here with a nice, full mouthfeel. The tartness in particular is memorable and it really sticks around long after the glass is emptied.
