Poured from a 22 into a goblet. Not sure what to expect after my last Lips of Faith beer.
A- It pours with a minimal head with light brown bubbles that dissipate fast. The color is a very hazy walnut. And it looks much more viscus then it is. Some carbonation is visible streaming from the bottom of the glass. There is no lacing to speak of as the beer goes down. It looks appetizing.
S- The smell sets me back for a minute, because its hard to place this with any familiar smells. At first it seems like a vinegar infused with cherries. Deeper inhales give way to an acidic malt with dark fruit undertones, which is a sort of dried unripened fruit. Intricate aroma.
T- The taste follows suite with the aroma. There is a very tart sour funk up front which carries cherries and unripened peach pits. Towards the end there is very intense oak with hints of vanilla.
M- This is a very acidic beer, it comes across as very light leaving a tart feeling on the tongue, almost like licking a 9V battery. Good carbonation, holds well with the flavor.
O- This is an amazing sour beer. It is very complex carrying the acidic funk towards the dry oak finish. It makes me pucker up after every sip. This would be amazing with a bowel of vanilla ice cream.
