Poured from a wax topped bottle ( 2013 Batch #2) into a snifter, the beer is a dark, slightly hazed, blood red coloring, with a halo of off-white head. Dark and opaque. Nose of subtle sour funk, tart grape must, berry sweetness, stone fruit, tannins, and earthy notes. Flavors are cherry and grape forward, tart and sour, with a heavily roasted and sugary backbone, woody undertones, and a solid, dry, red wine character. Dry, slick bodied, with a tart grape and berry aftertaste. Dry throughout, straight through to the finish, with a lingering tart feel. Damn near perfect beer!

2013/Batch 2

Very sour; lemony and jammy with cherry and raspberry flavors. Vinous and mildly funky. Creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. So sour and so nice.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Thanks Keith!!

Pours a deep maroon body with an off white head that reduces quickly to a ring of foam.
Aroma is oaky, musty, funky, citrusy, with a tinge of vanilla. Upfront it's sour on the tongue, with dry sour grape notes, some funky basement, and oak /caramel / vanilla on the finish. Very complex. Medium carbonation, easy drinker with a medium body.

Absolutely delicious.. Super complex and balanced.
