4.22/5  rDev -4.1%

A: Poured a murky reddish brown color with a small fizzy light tan cap

S: Oak, tart cherries, some Earthiness and light booze.

T: Taste of sour cherries, oak, light bourbon, caramel and yeast but I did not pick up any dark fruits in this, perhaps some dark cherries in the mix with the unripe and red cherries

M: Medium bodied with nice carbonation and a creamy but tart finish. A sherry, port wine feel to it

O: Good

2009 vintage brewed with grapes, poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: medium brown with red hue, 1 finger of tan head, moderate lacing.

Smell: earthy, grape, funky, sour cherries, pinot noir, a hint of brett.

Taste: red wine vinegar, sour cherries, tart, oak, a little vanilla, sweet tarts.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, high carbonation, crisp, tart, acidic.

Overall: A tasty beer. Good amount of sour, very complex, very drinkable. The pinot is very prevalent. Thanks Ryan.
