2013 vintage Bottle from Food and Friends in Philly.
Pours a crystal clear reddish brown with a decent sized tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Funk and oak permeate from the glass as soon as the cap gets cracked. Vanilla, lemons, sour cherries, brown sugar, and a hint of balsamic round out the nose nicely. The flavor is tart lemony acid. There's a brief sugary sweetness up front that quickly gets swallowed by lemons tart cherries mouth puckering lactic and carbonic acid abounds. The finish is fairly dry with a sharp lingering tartness. Very little of the oak or brett funk survives into the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart sharp mouthfeel. This smells wonderful but the taste is bracingly tart. I enjoyed it like munching on sour patch kids, but on the plus side I forgot how hot it was while I was drinking this.
