Chewy and foamy oatmeal-colored head, two fingers thick and persists well. Body is like a ruby, deep red but good clarity against light. 5

Vinous quality to the nose and tart cherry aroma. Seems to have a touch of lacto but everything is clean and vinegar-free. 4

Excellent taste here, especially for the cleanness. Tart cherry, a hint of cranberry, sweet vanilla and a citric, faintly lemony finish. 4.5

Exceptionally smooth and creamy and still tart and a tad acidic. It's refreshing, vinous and dry. 4.25

Great brew and for the price a steal almost.

I really fell for this beer... even read some notes on the style prior to trying it. Looked awesome in the glass, with the deep reddish, brown hue... little to no head going on here. Amazing nose, including the vinegar note (which I loved for some reason), and some crazy dark fruit medley as well. The taste was unique, and amazing with all of the aroma notes joining the party. Pucker up! The mouthfeel was very dry, and left me wanting more. Super clean and original. Damn, just damn.
