a: its a murky mix of light brown, ruby red, and dark burnt caramel. it had a really fizzy 1 finger tan head (like a soda) that fades almost immediately. right now its just a film on the side of the glass

s: apple cider vinegar, dark sour concord grapes, sweet molasses. finishes with a nice smell of port - you really can pick that up, which is nice. its an aroma that makes your mouth water

t: there is an insane initial blast of sourness that is an intense mix of like vinegar, soured grapes, and something acidic. it is immediately smoothed out though with a nice port sweetness - its crazy how well the sourness is immediately given away to a rich silky sweet grape like flavor. there is a nice vanilla presence in here as well with a nice oak finish. this is genuinely really good. its not so much a balance here, as a perfect transition of flavors inside your mouth

m: its an interesting combination of a nice smooth mouthfeel with a large amount of carbonation. mouthfeel is definitely on the lighter side (carbonation helps that). finishes a bit dry

o: what can i say? its delicious. a crazy perfect transition of flavors in here that works so well. punch of sour and a nice port wine finish. so glad i tried
