look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle shared by pmoney. Served in a FFF teku.

A: Pours a dark ruby color with a light tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to at thin ring that leaves some soapy lace behind.

S: Tart cherries with some light hints of bourbon. Sharp vinegar aspect to it with a oak barrel as well. Medium sweetness from malts run across the nose.

T: Cherry pie filling with tart cherry skins. Lactic sourness with some zingy vinegar notes. Sweet barrel finish with a combination of oak, vanilla and light bourbon.

M: Medium to light bodied, alcohol is well hidden with a zingy finish.

O: Sort of like a black cherry warhead in a sense with a less intense sour pucker. Zingy and tart with some sweetness from the barrel. Nice beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottle shared thanks to Darrell (durwoodx), thanks for sharing! 2011 vintage.

The look is nice, it has a deep crimson look to it, very small ring of white head. Inviting look.

Smell is good, but not great to me. I get the cherries, a bit of oak, and then a hefty amount of funky cheese. For me it really has a ton of blue cheese/Camembert cheese to me, doesn't pop with lambic or wild smells but not bad.

The taste has a huge rush of sour cherry and vanilla/chocolate swirl ice cream, huge vinegar rush a t the back of the flavor that opens to a sweet corn type flavor. A ni mid flavor spiciness evolves with each sip which is nice, the flavor doesn't linger other than a vinegar type tartness that is palate numbing in some ways, feel is carbonated and decently bodied, I dig it.

This beer is good, had next to other beers in the style and it was better in many ways. Nice.
