Poured into a tulip. Not sure of the vintage.

3.50 A: Pours a clear deep amber color. Didn't get much of a head going.

4.00 S: Big fruity cherry, then some more cherry. Funky lactic acid. Woody earthiness, grassy.

4.25 T: Again lots of cherry. Big woodiness. Lots of tangy lactic acid with much less acetic. The flavors mesh together quite well.

4.00 M: Lighter medium body. Light, but spritzy carbonation. Super smooth.

4.25 D: Great beer. Always love 3F.

Pour is transparent blood red with almost no head, a touch of dark purple foam on top. Nose has lots of cherry up front with a moderate amount of funk. It's gets a bit leathery after the traditional earthy mushroomy funk with a bit of rubber band. Taste is stronger cherry, pitted ripe dark red cherry. The funk is lighter, a touch earthy and some rubber band through the back. Fairly sour finish with a light body and strong carbonation.
