Thanks to mlaroche for this CARBONATED bottle!
Pours a dark brown color with deep reddish hues when held up to the light, fizzy carbonated bubbles about an inch high fade away at a rapid pace, no lacing on the glass.
Smell has a rich sour tart cherry aroma, vinegar twinges the nose, picking up a bit of oak woodiness that adds some complexity.
Taste really has quite the sour vinegar kick upfront, tickles the side of the tongue, a deeper complexity creeps into play as the wood character mellows out the sourness, cherry tartness is quite prevalent, not overly sweet or cloying, carbonation is quite present and kind of fizzy (a shock!).
One of Lost Abbey's finer beers, almost makes you forgive them for past sins.
