Murky brown pour with a dark ruby essence. Bubbly white head rises, though dissipates settling into a fine film. Lacing is splotchy.
Smell has a great funk, with a nice sweet backing. Balance in a sour? I dare say so. Cherry tartness is well balanced against the oak mellowing.
Funk is well mellowed, providing a nice gateway for the cherries. Sweetness is muted, giving a nice balance. Earthy undertones in the finish.
Oily mouthfeel, leaving a nice resonance. Very nice, mellow and a great symbol within the style.
