A-Pours a murky ruddy brown color with a few fingers of off white head.
S-Smells of heavy balsamic notes with some sour cherry notes.
T-Tart, acidic cherry and slight vinegar notes with a bit of leather.
M-Medium bodied with low but prickly carbonation and crisp, light feel.
D-Highly drinkable; drinks more like a mildly carbonated, yet complex, juice cocktail.

Poured from the 750 mL bottle into a chalice glass.
Pours a reddish rusty color that's nearly opaque, tan head of about two fingers leaves decent lacing.
Smell is really peculiar, it's very inviting for me. There's a lot of sourness juxtaposed by a delicate sweetness. Some notes of wood or something I can't define float around.
This beer is certainly a sour one, but not overly so. Actually the sourness is pretty restrained by a nice cherry sweetness that takes over the middle. Finishes with a touch of that wood I noted before with some nice malt and some residual sour.
Mouthfeel is slightly dry, medium bodied.
Wow, I can't believe how fast I am imbibing this. As one of my first sour beers (not THE first) I can tell I am falling in love with these styles. Awesome beer.
