4.5/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Project 2011. 7.62%
750ml bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance
Hazy copper with red highlights. 2 fingers of pinkish head with good retention for a sour. Very low carbonation.

Nose
Sour cherry, crushed Sweet Tarts, cherry Jolly Rancher and musty cellar.

Taste
Red wine vinegar and crushed up Sweet Tarts. Sour pie cherries, maraschino cherry juice and Jolly Ranchers (you know, the red ones). Some lemon and lactic acidity. Big red wine notes, perhaps Pinot Noir. There’s a touch of nuttiness and French oak on the finish as well as a hint of musty basement.

Mouthfeel
Light-medium bodied, tart, clean and refreshing.

Overall
Medium sourness. Loads of red wine. Cherries, cherries, cherries. Awesome!
