Appearance : dark auburn to brown in color. Some Haze. Low cream/auburn head that disappeared very quickly.

Aroma: some Grape musts, sour cherry, and wood . No alcohol or hops present. some funk. I think some floral notes as well behind the sour cherry

Flavor: Some malt sweetness comes through in beginning,leading to sour cherry and grapes flavors, gives way to sourness and some oak and vanilla in the finish, no hop flavor

Mouthfeel: med light body, med carb, some alcohol warmth but very smooth, dry finish

Overall: Very drinkable. The alcohol is hidden well with this one.

@ Triangle Wine Co.

2011

Foggy, glowing brownish-red color, looking pretty flat, with no head to speak of. Sour fruit and spicy wood aromas...dusty grapes, cherry tartness, oak, and mild port. A little much on the sharp acetone perhaps. Sweetish upfront, quickly turning tart, with a dry wooden spiciness, slight acetic notes, vinegar, cherry, and no booze at all. Slick, dry, and tart in the mouth. A good Flemish Sour-esque beer. Not sure I'd ever spend $30 on a bottle though...

Color is slightly hazy auburn red with a rather quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweetly stinky. Fermented grape musk, tangy cherry, sweet earthy wood, warm sunny wild flowers. Taste is clean, tart with cherry, and woody. Mouth watering and elegant. Not the slightest sign of alcohol is apparent. Very crisp, clean smoothly balanced flavors. Mouthfeel is slick and softly syrupy, and this beer is highly drinkable. Pretty excellent.
