Romulux delivers again, thanks!

Slightly hazy, deep brown with medium head. Soft cherries in the aroma, oak-y for sure. Quite sour and acetic-ally so, but fortunately not enough to deter me. Hint of bourbon and oak most definitely, with some sweetness as well.

Finishes dry and tannic, reminds me quite a bit of Rodenbach Grand Cru.

A quite good beer overall but seems likes it's not my type.

Appearance is cloudy reddish with minimal head, plenty of lacing. The nose is full of red apples, cherries, oak, vinegar, and pithy character. Taste is very tart up front with plenty of acidic character with oaky notes. The finish is plenty sour with an adition of some earthy character. Mouthfeel is heavy with moderate carbonation. Overall, nice unique brew with plenty of tartness and fruity character.

A cherry attack, following an invitation of funk and cherry in the aroma. A lasting head and spider lace. Above average mouthfeel. Mild acidity, its nothing compared to the sours we had today. A pretty perfect beer.Great and dangerous. drinkability.Liam's bottle, thanks!

A: pours a murky reddish brown with two fingers of beige head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: lots going on here. Sweet candy sugar, tart fruits, some slight whiskey notes, and some oak as well.

T: loads of tart and sour cherry flavors on the palate. There are some lightly funky flavors as well, but mostly tons of sour flavors.

M: light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light and fairly dry.

O: a good beer overall. I wish the flavor was as complex as the aroma, but it's still quite good.
