750ml corked and caged bottle split between a pair of large snifters. Don't see a date anywhere, but the label says 2012 project.

Pours dark ruby-brown, little head, not much carbonation. Fairly opaque. Smell is very tart, very fruity -- blackberry or something similar.

Taste follows the smell. Fruity and very tart. More dark fruit.

Mouthfeel is mild and nice. Overall, good beer.

Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany color that is slightly hazy, with dark ruby hints around the edges. There is about a half finger of dark tan head that reduces pretty quickly, leaving a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Big currant scents on the nose. Also black cherries, oak, very light funk, a bit of lemony sourness and vinegar. Seems like this one is going to be fairly sour.

Taste: I get a lot of black cherries and currants up front. Hints of oak and a good deal of sourness on the back end. Lots of vinegar notes. Finish is oak, sourness and currant intermingling.

Mouthfeel/Overall: This beer is light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of spritzy carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. Not my favorite of the night, as it does turn a bit more sour as I'd like to see. I would definitely have it again though.
