It pours a beautiful clear, dark mahogany with a head that dissipates fast. The first thing I noted in the aroma was wood. There is quite a bit of it and then the maltiness and a lactic sourness can be detected as well. It is very complex and elegant to drink. It is tart with some fruity cherry notes, there is some wood notes as well as some wine notes. The perfect marriage between sweet and sour with a somewhat dry lactic finish. The amazing beer is truly the standard for the style.

A: Dark amber compared to some other FR I have tried. little lacing and little carbonation.
S: More sour cherries on the nose than anything. You get the musty wood too which is nice but not too much outside of that for me.
T: Nothing too crazy outside of what to expect within the style but they nailed this to a tee. The sour cherry profile is balanced nicely with a clean sensation.
M: Surprisingly just a medium-light mouthfeel with little carbonation. One of the more drinkable FR I have tried.
O: This beer has an odd palate-cleansing sensation that amazed me. Not too sour nor a fruit punch with is refreshing in its' own right.
Serving type: on-tap
