This poured a dark cranberry red to almost brown that gave it a purplish hue in the bar. The head was a tightly knit cap of dense brownish foam.

The aroma is tart, a tad sour and full of balsamic funk. A good amount of sour cherry can be had along with some barrel wood.

The flavor is well matched between barrel and sour. The taste is tangy and tart with cherry, vinegar and sour. The barrel manifests itself in a bit of oak and a touch of vanilla for sweetness. This taste profile compliments the sour cherry very well.

The feel is a bit puckering but not over done and adds to the personality of this ale.

This is listed as a strong ale but this certainly could mask for a well done European Flanders, Oud Bruen or any other sour style ale.
