Pours a deep burgundy-brown color. Looks pretty clear. Smallish light beige head, fairly fizzy. The bubbles die away to not much after a minute or two. Aroma is sour and wood with a touch of funk. I was expecting a more acidic beer, and while it does trend that way a tad, this beer has a pretty nice balance of sour, wild flavors. There's a lot of sour fruit knocking around. Grapes, blackberries, peaches, cranberries, raspberries, apricots. While the funk is relatively mild, it does contribute and give the beer some depth. Best of all, there's none of that bile note that plagues so many American sours (at least for me). Solid woodiness and bretty funk. The taste has a pretty good acid bite running throughout. There's some soured maltiness, giving the beer a bit of body. Fairly vinous. A bit harsher than the aroma but it still doesn't go overboard. Quite dry. Light body. Very good beer.
