Nice reddish copper appearance. Aroma is slightly metallic? That seems a bit odd. Taste is very nice up front with a tart sourness of grapes and some slight cherry, but peters out too quickly. If this had a better finish (like the Cuvee Jacobins) this would be an awesome beer.

Serving type: on-tap

(served in a 10 oz pub goblet)

A: dark, reddish brown - like when the autumn cedar leaves stain the color of the water in a lake... only a little foam on the pour, fizzed out

S: bold presence of wood fibers, vinous, light touch of cocoa

T: tart red grape... touch of cocoa midway... grapefruit-ian sweet-tart... very delicate twiggy-woody and/or dry-roasted nutshell in the finish

M: funky-acidic bite up front, the tannin-sanded body slips on through... light-medium bodied flow and tannic bitterness midway... sour tang smeared on the sides of the mouth... disappears down the gullet, dry, mild alcohol glow

O: pretty good, pretty dry... fruity, but not sweet... bright flares jostling the palate, but not quite refreshing... can say it does seem to ignite the appetite

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

really well balanced sour with notes of spice, pepper, and lot of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, sourness is nice. carbonation is a little heavy, kind of distracting on certain sips, still its almost up with jacobins, as far as what I can get my hands on in this same category of beers
