On tap at Quotations. Served into a broad mouth goblet
Smell, Tart oak jumps out at my nose first, hint of sour cherry and strawberry also grab for attention
Taste, Wow. Mild tartness, oak, cherries, and grape flavors dominate my now ecstatic taste buds. Very little carbonation present, which helps the flavors of the beer flex their muscle. Hint of sourness, but this one makes it hard to distinguish the tart from the sour. Kind metallic tastes also present, but the kind that shows in sour ales, the fruits and tartness really balance it and meld it into their own flavor. If this beer was any more complex, it would have to come with blueprints.
Overall, one of the most complex beers I've ever had, and top 5 for the year. Worth the $6.50 10oz draught pour. Find it, buy it, and appreciate it.
Serving type: on-tap

No bottling date that I can find.
A: Pours a dark reddish-brown. Very tall, very frothy light brown head. Head settles down eventually with only a little dot or two of lacing here and there. Good retention.
S: Dark fruits and berries. Light acetone. Floral.
T: Mild lactic sourness with floral flavors. Fruity in general and throughout, but nothing I can specifically place other than apples. A brief hit of sourness in the finish. Somewhat dry aftertaste, like dried apple slices.
M: Medium bodied, smooth and dry.
O: Very interesting brew. Floral and fruity in general. Crisp and refreshing - exceptionally so. Tart and sour here and there but nothing super overpowering. Nicely varied, really.
