11.2 oz bottle served in a Trappist Goblet

Appearance: Dark ruby red color. Fairly clear when held up to the light with a fair amount of carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass. There was less than a finger of a light tan head that dissipated almost instantly and left no lacing.

Smell: Sour cherries, acidic, green apple, oak, balsamic vinegar.

Taste: Packs a nice sour acidic punch up front. Flavors of cherry, oak, apple skin. Sourness yields to a bit of a sweet bready maltiness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with reasonably high carbonation.

Overall: Excellent beer and one of the best I've had in the style. Definitely a must try for anyone who's a fan of sours.

On draft in a CCB snifter at Gainesville House of Beer. Pours very dark red, nearly no head. Vinegar sour cherries on nose, some pleasant cream aroma here. Very nice. Flavor follows suit with massive sour cherry and vinegar, but with a beautiful smooth and crisp finish. Easy drinking and relatively light mouthfeel. This is one of my favorites in the style, and put it right behind Duchesse and Rodenbach Vintage. Good stuff.
