A- Tart cherry and red grape notes.
A- Nice creamy biege head. Deep reddish brown. Clear on the initial pour.
F- There's a strong tartness present, but its not unidimensional at all. The malt is still present and there's a subtleness to the sourness that surprises. I would guess the long aging time and the multiplicity of bugs make this happen.
M- Silky with a strong dry finish. The body is still there, but overall it's rather low. Nicely drinkable.
O- Wow. A tart beautiful beer that drinks so easily and reminds me of red wine, but still retains the underlying beer qualities. I'm glad I finally got my hands on this one.

14oz pour on-tap at bier markt mississauga
a: a very gorgeous clear ruby red with about a finger of off-white frothy head
s: really sour vinegar up front, but underneath that is a blend of woody notes and tart fruits, mainly cherries
t: follows the nose. tart to begin with, but leads quickly into fruity notes -- cherries, slight tart apples, berries, even some vinous qualities. the oak flavours add a dimension of complexity, working really well with the fruit tastes. no alcohol whatsoever. dry finish
m: medium-bodied with medium-to-high prickly carbonation, but it's kind of creamy. i love this mouthfeel
o: what an absolute delight of a beer. it's sour, fruity, tasty, and refreshing. i'm glad to have had the opportunity to taste this, and i'll definitely have this again in the future if i ever see it

Pours a brilliant amber with red highlights and a lingering, frothy khaki head. Aroma is laden with balsamic vinegar and oak. Tart cherry surfaces late. Flavor is slightly sweet, but the balsamic vinegar acetic notes counter to balance. Cherry notes mingle with oak, and somehow, there's an almost creamy mouthfeel. Not as tart as some, but very characterful. It's sweeter than I recall.
