750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a rich 1 finger light cream colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a clear dark mahogany. Lacing is stringy and patchy with great stick. Very nice.

Nose is tart strawberry and raspberry puree with a bit of woodiness in the back. Dense but surprisingly mellow.

Opens tart cherry and other red fruit. Slight touch of vinegar mixed with oak in the middle. Vinous. Great balance between sweet and sour. Tartness builds towards the end but integrates well with a big fruit and barrel presence at the finish. Accented aftertaste. Not too vinegary or acidic. Real smooth.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly prickly but smooth in the mouth and goes down filmy and easy. Finishes messy with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Very drinkable.

This beer delivers all the flavor of the style without the harsh acidity. Really nice and one of my favorites in the category.
