4.19/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Cracked open during a tasting - thanks to whomever brought this one along. Pours a ruby color, dark-red and almost brown in some spots with a thin ring of slightly-pink head topping this one off and leaving no noticeable lacing along the sides. The aroma is very pleasant, cherry-oak flavors clash and mingle quite well, leading way to a bigger collage of berries; tart, sour, and sweet all at once. Moderate berries and grapes on the nose, as well, though the cherries are clearly the start of the show here, as expected (...CERISE, fucking duh). The oaky aroma definitely gets stronger as this one gets a little warmer.

But surprisingly enough, the oak is much more subdued on the palate, which is mildly upsetting. It's definitely there, but certainly plays tertiary to many of the other flavors. Fruits are the heaviest thing here - ripe cherries, green apples, berries; very, very sour and tart, nearly puckering. The tartness lasts for quite a while before it settles down and mellows out into a fruit-laden sweetness. There's a very light wet-wood flavor on the tail end - again, I wish this oak character was a bit stronger, I think it would work well with the sour cherries. Some cork flavors in the finish as well, feigning a slightly mild funky flavor... Was this brewed with brett yeast? I didn't think so, but this faint funky flavor tells me otherwise. Thin-medium body with a medium amount of carbonation.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit, although I am very partial to cherries - one of my favorite fruits. Nice tartness, good sour elements, and an oak aroma that I wish came out a bit more on the palate. Light funk at the end ties everything together. I'd love to have this one again.
