At inside out gallery in Traverse City, MI, March 2013

Poured from a bottle dated 17 nov 2013

Appearance: Small head that thinned quickly. The beer is a deep, clear mahogany color.

Aroma: Somewhat mild but could detect a yeasty brett funky aroma.

Taste: More hops than funk. Not a deep flavor profile but good. Piney hops lingered after swallowing.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, pleasant carbonation.

Overall: A good example of this style. I'll have it again.

A- 1 finger of creamy white foam with a dark red copper body and no signs of carbonation. the head retains well and the lacing is quite thick.

S- dark cherry, almost red wine with some yeast and a lingering caramel malt undertone.

T- sticky caramel malt dominate with a very faint hop character in the background. it's a nice flavor, but get ready for an assertive medium malt bite.

M- Dry, medium-to-light body, and very spritzy carbonation. It's sessionable at 7 percent, which is dangerous, but delightful.

O- I could drink the hell out of this. It's got a very nice pronounced flavor but with the body and level of carbonation leaves you able to continue on without getting fatigued. I'd pick up a 6 pack any day.
