4.38/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

750 ml bottle, caged and corked, hand numbered and dated.

Reddish brown in color, mostly clear with a tan head.

Dark cherries in the nose, followed by notes of rum, alcohol, and wood, plus a touch of barnyard.

Medium light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Berry and cherry flavors briefly show at the top, flowing into sweat, a metallic twang, spanish olives, and a very long sour lemon finish. Gueuze-like in its puckering sourness, funkiness, and complexity.

I have another bottle of this, and I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to age it or not. I'd hate for it to go to vinegar town, but I would like to see what happens down the road.
