4.61/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: dark black/brown with red hues in the light, creamy tan head, no clarity from dark color
Aroma: fruity with notes of black cherry and orange, and plum, soft malt sweetness in the background
Taste: immediately taste the cherry, orange and plum, malt then takes over and rounds out taste to keep it definitively in the beer taste category and not wine, sour finish, incredible complexity of flavor and evolution of taste
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, medium body, prickly in the mouth like a soft drink but smooth on the swallow
Overall Impression: A beer with amazing complexity and depth. Deftly skirts the line between beer and red wine, sour and sweet, and biting and smooth. Best described as a beer dressed up as a red wine with a sour kick.
Serving type: bottle
