Had this on tap at EBF 2011 Night of the Barrels.

Looks like I expected, deep red in color with a very light head which Ive come accustomed to with my LA experiences.

Smell reaks of cherries with slight oak and funky undertones.

Cherries come out really nice in this, then the oak and a little tart with a subtle funkiness on the finish. Very, very good.

Mouthfeel is near perfect. Carbonation is not too high and not too low, just where it needs to be.

This was very drinkable and I wish this was bottled. Picked up some of 2011 Red Poppy the next day and am looking forward to trying it, hopefully I wont be let down.

Sampled at EBF. Ratebeer won't recognize this entry, so I am rating it here. Pours a hazy, copper amber with some creamy white head. Nose of vinegar, strawberry, malt, raspberry. Flavor is the same, lots of berry, some vinegar, some malt, light lactic. Full, tart finish.
