Very clear amber brew. Decent head, understandably short life based on style.

Incredibly complex and subtle aroma. Caramel, toffee, coconut, oak, vanilla, honey, and of course sour. Musty, almost like dog musk, with sour grapes.

Very sour, but not overwhelming. Slightly sweet and fruity. Balanced oak and vanilla.

Disappointingly thin and oily mouthfeel; the only part of this brew that is less than outstanding.

On Tap at abv pub. Lightly sour with a little cherry and a ton of oak dominating the flavor. Overall very approachable and enjoyable.
