Vintage 2012

A - pours a pink rose red with a thin white head of fine bubbles

S - salty and lactic aroma, leathery oak wood, tart raspberries, floral notes, lemons, vinegar.

T - starts out with flat raspberry flavor but a lactic tartness slowly builds to a salty sour finish. As it warms the raspberries really start to come out and bring more acidity. The dry oaky flavors give this some some depth. The finish is snappy, tart and very crisp.

M - light body, low carbonation,tart and dry finish.

A nice fruity sour with oak and yeast drying out the sweetness and adding depth. I will pick up several of these the next time I see them.

Bottle share at Proof. Rosy pink in color with only the thinnest of collars, and no head present. Aroma is fruity (more raspberry than cherry) and tart/dry yeast. Taste is sour cherry, a slight raspberry, but mostly just sour and not well balanced. Light body, low carbonation and tongue puckering from the tartness.
