This was sent to me by biglobo8971 way back in the day. Thanks Brandon!
Served in an Olde Hickory glass.
A: Poured a grape juice color, with almost no head to speak of (BA brews rarely do), maybe just a couple of mounds of bubbles.
S: Like a fine red wine with a sour twist. Sour cherries, vanilla, a bit of wood. Very potent indeed.
T: Perhaps I took to big of a gulp because my jaw just locked. I definitely good the richness from the quad upfront, but the late mid to the finish was pure sour cherry jubilee. I didn't get any bourbon taste, but the smooth, buttery, velvety finish could have been none other.
M: Pretty thick as far as these wild yeast beers go, somewhat acidic, but not totally a sour bomb. After a few sips, once the palate warm up to the flavors and sensations, the brew becomes somewhat smoother and creamier. No lacing left on the glass.
O: Totally blown away here. This is the best beer I've had so far in 2013.

Snifter pour with nice carbonation. Pours an amber/brown colored ale with a beige head. Burgandy highlights. Light foam around the glass.
Aroma consists of red vinegar, red wine, cherries, old school funk and oak.
Taste is sour cherries with noticeable red wine characteristics. Slight vanilla on the aftertaste. Wood and oak present as well. Good stuff.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised, but no overwhelmed by this pricey brew. Was happy to have tried it but the overall cost would make me think twice about consuming another. Still a good beer and session though.
