Pours a vibrant berry red, nearing magenta. Somewhat cloudy. Small off white head. After a minute or two, only a ring of bubbles with wisps across the surface remain. The aroma is a fruity mix of flavors. There's hibiscus along with blackberries, raspberries, lemons, apples and a fruity floral quality, not quite sure what to call it. I'm a little surprised to pick up some of the cinnamon, kinda expected it to have faded or dominated by the other flavors. Mild whiskey note. Some oak. The barrel mostly seems to contribute some fairly strong vanilla. The hibiscus/berries still are in control, but the vanilla adds some good sweetness. The taste is medium sour. Starts with berry and vanilla sweetness, before tarter berries and lemons take over. Oak in the finish. Not much funk but it's there a bit. Sourness seem mostly lactic. Overall, it's quite dry. Fairly effervescent at first, but it settles pretty quickly. Pretty light on the palate. Lingering lactic aftertaste with a medium pucker. Very good beer. I wasn't really sure what to expect with this one, but it's probably my second favorite from CS, after Batch #1.
