3.84/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A - - A hazy, opaque rusty brew pours to a single finger head that settles to leave small gobs of lacing.
S - - Earthy wooden tones, acid, cherry notes accompanied by a hint of funk.
T - - A mild sourness is quickly balanced by the wood and cherry sweetness. Touches of pepper and a hint of clove on the finish.
M - - Soft carbonation, medium bodied, almost a little thin. Leaves a residual schmuck in your chops that isn't unpleasant but given the sourness level I wouldn't have expected.
O - - A nicely balanced and minor twist on a classic style, but not altogether mind blowing. Worth a try, I'd pick it up again for a refresher.

3.7/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
750ml bottle with no freshness date poured into a wine glass
Appearance: Pours a red brown color typical to the style. Standard pour yielded 2 fingers of a light beige head with moderate spotty lacing. Body is dark but relatively clear with moderate visible carbonation.
Smell: Balsamic vinegar, sweet cherry juice, light funkiness, apple and a slight lactic character. There's a sugary candy character to the aroma as well, almost like cherry pixie sticks.
Taste: Sweet and sour cherry, vinegar, oak, darker fruit, decent amount of maltiness. Sourness is on the low end.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium soft carbonation. Reasonably high drinkability.
Overall: Not extremely memorable, but still a good beer. Not sure that I would get this again, but would recommend as a good beginner beer for someone new to sours.
