Pours murky brown. Soapy head. Very little lacing.

Aroma is of plumbs, apple skins, cherry and slight vinegar.

Taste is on the sweeter side with plumb and apple sweetness. tartness is overshadowed by sweetness.

Medium mouthfeel.

Pretty drinkable. Will try the grand cru at some point.

Serving type: bottle

P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg,PA

A- deep red hue with a dr.pepper like color to it. Spiderweb lacing on pint that was one finger head.

S- sour, tart and white distilled vinegar like smell. I also get some oak/wood.

F- Sour tartness dominates the mouth with cherries.

M- tartness and smooth and creamy for an ale.

O-I am not a fan of the sourness but it really was a good beer overall. I may have one again.
