Appearance. Poured from the 750 mL bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Less than one finger head off white. Burgundy brown in the glass.
Smell. Tart cherries, vinigar, crab apple.
Taste. Same as the smell but with tannins.
Mouthfeel. Mouth puckering, drying, tart astringency.
Overall this an intresting beer because its a sipping thirst quencher. How can that be?

Bottle shared by Steve at my 22nd birthday, 750ml bottle corked/caged into a tulip. No vintage date.

Poured a dark reddish brown, mocha head with great head retention and some splotchy lace. Nose has sour berries, oak/vanilla/general barrel character. Lots of dried fruits. More tart berry flavours, sweet and sour fruit notes throughout. Oak, vanilla and a touch of brown sugar. More barrel character. Exceptional balance. A phenomenal sour, fantastic feel and flavour.
