4.63/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This one pours out dark brown with a reddish tint. Head is two fingers of tan suds. The bubbles are really fine and stick to the side of the glass.
Smell is lemmon zest and and cherry tart. Oak aroma and just a little yeast along with a sweet malt finish the aroma here.
Taste is a bash of sourness with lemon zest and granny smith peel. A darkness follows with a hint of sweetness. This is followed by a dry dark cherry malt.
Mouthfeel is very intense at the beginning with lots of bubbles to tingle the tounge.
A little oily but so sour that it cleanses the palate almost immediatly.
Drinkability is high here because it is so damn good.
