Pours a hazy orange/amber color with a sticky white head. Some acetic sourness, cherry, and a nice lactic note. There is a fair amount of oak, some grass, and a bit of lemon peel. A touch of fruity sweetness. The flavor is quite tart, maybe a bit on the acetic side. Red wine vinegar, leather, some oak, and a hint of cherry. A little bit of lemon and lemon peel. Light malt and fruit sweetness in the background. Just a hint of straw and grass in there too.
Serving type: on-tap

@ Busy Bee
Cloudy orange-amber with little head to speak of. Interesting aroma...tart funkiness coating toffee-like malts, fruit, cherries, and earthy must. I coax up some acetic notes with a deep sniff. Flavor is tart, again with a solid malt presence for balance. Caramel, cherries, spicy wood, berries, vanilla, slightly phenolic on the back end. Body leans towards the fuller side of medium, and finishes dry and tart. This started out seeming like it was going to be more of a slow-sipper, but became dangerously drinkable and refreshing.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a wine glass.
Golden orange. Light light head.
Smell is incredible. Bright fruit. Tart and funky. Lambic. Deep and complex.
Mmmm. Beautiful balsamic vinegar. Light fruit. Vaguely briney. The aftertaste is...wheaty? Lightly dry and vivacious. Mouthfeel is sparkling, clean, and mineraly.
Great sour. Highly recommended. God bless Hair of the Dog and the bartender at Grape & Grain who gave me this.
