Poured from a 750 ml cork n cage bottle into a Lost Abbey chalice.
A- Pours a dark copper with a pinkish hue, has a 2 finger light pink head that recedes very quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass.
S- Nice sour and funk is noticed immediately, followed by berries, some vinegar also.
T- Sour, tart and vinous dark fruits (cherries and raspberries as noted on bottle), vinegar and funky/earthy taste at the finish.
M- Medium body and high carbonation. Very acidic and hard to drink at first, but seems to subdue as it warms.
O- 7/10 sourness. Really enjoyed this sour. Has very nice tart/sour flavors complemented with some fruit flavors from the raspberries and cherries.

750ml bottle into Jackie O’s snifter. Thanks Dave!
A: Pours a clear cranberry juice color with super fizzy layer of bubbles that disappeared almost as quickly as I pour. Very active carbonation.
S: Bright notes of cherries and raspberries (and cranberries) dominate the nose. The berries are tart and lightly sweet smelling. Dry oak barrel, lemon-like acidity, and tannic oak and fruit skins mix with the fresh berry tartness. This smells very dry and very puckering.
T: The raspberry seems to come through more than the cherry, but it is there. The oak barrel really shines and it adds a dry, earthy, woodiness to the fruit. I also get hints of lemon and also a mild sweaty funk. In the finish, I get tart berry notes that remind me of cranberries, and fruity flavors in the aftertaste are jam-like and slightly sweet.
M: Medium body with a thicker mouthfeel than I expected given the ample carbonation. The carbonation is soda-like but softer and fuller. Definitely smoother and heavier than I’d of thought. Drinks very well. Not as tart as the nose let on.
O: A clean and easy fruit sour. Fruit/oak flavors complement each other rather than overpower. Thanks again, buffs9!
