Poured in to a tulip. Thin, white head. Hazy, ruby red colored body.
Aroma was awesome as soon as the bottle was opened. Loads of tart cherry, lactic acid and barrel aromas. A bit of caramel and roasted barley. Some malty aroma peaks through.
Taste was great. Malty and caramely upfront followed with an earthy backbone. Good amount of oak/barrel flavor with lots of tart cherries, prune and dark fruits. Acidic and sour. Mild lingering tartness.
Mouthfeel was medium/light, medium/high carb and dry finish.
Excellent beer overall. Lots of flavor complexity, aroma is nice and strong, and an overall great balance. Really enjoyable.
