750ml into a snifter. The brew is a darker pink color with a white head that fades leaving spotty lace.

The aroma is quite oaky with a touch of mineral character and some earthen funk. Seedy raspberry character blends with a slightly medicinal cherry note. Some cheesy lacto yogurt notes are present across the finish.

The taste carries a bit of that medicinal and herbal tartness with raspberry seeds, cherry pits and juice with a cheese and funk appeal. Some oaky vanilla flavors are present across the back.

This is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall nice stuff with lots barrel flavor to balance the tartness. I would drink this again if the opportunity presented itself.

Really tasty sour from the pros @ Odell.

Not my favorite style, but I can tell by the way it is that people that like sours would only dream of bathing in this sweet nectar.
