This is one dark brew! One-finger snappy off-white head rises and falls fairly quickly. No lacing, and moderate retention.

Dark, deep, sour funk. Tons of red cherrys, green apple, horsey, cider vinegar, cinnamon, kinda medicinal. Spicy.

Kinda thin and missing a bit. Sour is more funk than tartness. Flavors are tons of apple skin, lemon, orange, roasted cider vinegar, farmy funk. Carbonation is very light and enjoyable. Sweetness is also very nice and morerate. Bitterness is more dryness than throat pulling. Very light, airy, and crisp.

A solid brew. But, it's not quite what I had in mind for the collab. It's worthy and nice, but a bit hard to swallow @ $15/650ml. Kinda a standard issue.

750ml bottle, split

This is a very lovely beer - lots of grape jam, raspberry, oak, tart summer berries. Very vinous in nature - wine, berry, and wood all in harmony. I really enjoyed this and if I see more, i'm buying it. Great collaboration effort
