Reviewed from notes on a few-day-old bottle that had been recapped. Enjoyed 13 August 2013.
A: Pours a hazy (almost cloudy) brownish-red/amber/ruby with minimal head of color I could not discern properly. Looks pretty good, though.
S: Smell is dominated by soured cherries -- this smells really tart! A little earthy funk from the brett is evident, but mostly this is wood and cherry and it smells delicious.
T/M: Mouth-puckeringly sour cherries, as expected. This beer is earthy with a little earthy funk, but so full of cherries. Pretty delicious, really. Mouthfeel is medium with a light carbonation (although I expect it was a bit more carbed a few days ago) that comes off just a little oily in a good way, leaving a nice coating tartness lingering alongside a sweet cherry finish.
O: I am quite impressed. This is a lot like a slightly muted Supplication to me; I'd be interested to have the two side-by-side.
