2010 bottling from the good Lodgers.
Hazy orange, a chunk of head dissolving eventually to dust. No, not dust. Liquid.
Sour cherry, lactic sour, oak, some acetobacter creeping.
The flavor is a buckler, the tongue wags, phased, down, but not out. It recovers, processes. Tart, sour are huge up front. There is a little bit of cherry sweetness but the time spent in secondary fermentation has minimized that action. The 3 cherry combo gives off some sweet and some tart, and combined with the lacto, make for an exciting beer. That little bit of aceto should only grow with time. Not sure what that means for the shelf life of this vintage, but it could get real exciting in a year or two before it gets totally out of hand.
As usual, but not necessarily always, an excellent beer from these guys. Missing the Barrel House greatly..
