A-About a 3/4" light tan head on a brown amber body. Yeast is stuck on the bottom of the cork even after it had been siting for about 2 weeks.
S- Big tart cherries right in the nose, oak, big sour notes, citrus hints, funk, lemon, and some vinegar.
T- Sweet light tart cherries with just a hint of sour note. Oak, caramel malts, light hints of lemon, the sour seems to fade fast but stays on the tongue almost as a light sour bitterness thing. Little funk comes through and in the after taste is light cherries and oak. I think the oak dominates the little aftertaste there is. The more it warms the aftertaste stays around a bit stronger.
M- Medium body with medium carbonation.
D- It's good but wouldn't say it's one of my favorites from them. Is great for the style though.
