Poured into my glass the beer is blood red with brown edges. The tan head is a thick creamy two inches high that recedes to leave just a touch of lace around the rim.

The aroma is a fantastic mix of sweet and sour cherries. Some dark fruits. A nice funkiness can be picked out after a little warming. This smells great.

The flavor is sour cherries, red grapes, plums, and apples. Raisins and dates are there as well. Nice dry tart finish leaves a slight funk in the mouth.

Medium to full body. Some chewiness. Lots of carbonation. Bone dry in the finish.

Overall a great beer. I love the push pull of the sweet and sour fighting for my taste buds attention. Nice and lively. A great after dinner beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours without much head. Cloudy semi-transparent reddish-brown. Smells of sour fruits--cherries, grapes, and pineapple--along with the sweet scent of brown sugar. An intriguing sour taste, like a mildly carbonated fruit punch with pineapple and cherry cider notes as well as a bit of a vinegar streak, but the flavors hold together to make it quite drinkable. The mouthfeel is light and the tartness--like a cider--is crisply refreshing. This is a beer with a presence and a unique complexity that makes one ponder as it is consumed.
