Dark Brown, slight haze. Good head retention. Carbonation looks nice and bubbly.
Aroma is pineapple, kiwi... over-ripe fruit. Touch of strawberry. Cherry is very faint, instead there is more complex stuff going on here. Touch of oak.
Cherry comes out a lot more in the taste. Tart cherry, oak comes through in the finish now, and lingers on. Melon... pineapple. Lactic bite cuts through the sweetness. More subtle oak. SO complex. Lots of fruity flavors all melding together.
Medium body, good viscosity, especially for a 5% beer! Carbonation is perfect. nice and bubbly.
An extremely refreshing, complex, delicious, beautiful sour ale. I wish I had a bigger bottle.
