This beer poured out as a clear looking reddish color with a foamy white head on top. The retention is thin and not much lacing. The beer has lots of carbonation. The smell of the beer is tart, oak and sour cherry aromas are subtle but definitely in there. The taste of it is also sour, some sharp cherry notes in the fading aftertaste. The mouthfeel of the beer is clean and tart, nice high level of carbonation that dries the beer out. Overall it's a good brew. Not typically my style but it's a good brew.

Pours a dark brown that appears clear and cranberry red against the light. Head is thick khaki and looks silky, with some sticking on the glass. Cherries, strawberries, and vinegar dominate the nose with hints of oak and dark chocolate. This smells rich. Vinegar dominates the palate from start to finish. Cherry, red currant, and pomegranate make an appearance as well. The sourness doesn't make you pucker much and the bitterness is lasting and warm, fading slowly. There is some oak in there that is apparent to anyone drinking, but its not overpowering like many oak aged beers tend to be. Feel is slightly watery with a balance finish tending towards dry.

This beer is really balanced in flavors with the vinegar sourness and lasting bitterness sticking their necks out among the other flavors. The oakiness is there but not over the top. In addition, I can't detect the high ABV at all and the buzz comes slowly, as this is a sipper. I was strangely underwhelmed, but then I realized it's because there is no one stand out feature due to the balance nature. I wouldn't age this too long, as the oak will fade completely.
