From a 2011 750 ml bottle into a large wine glass.
A-Poured a beautiful, light claret color. Almost plum colored. Complex and very vinous looking. Not much carbonation or head to speak off. A little collar of white head hangs around.
S-Tart cherries and dark, supple fruit. A touch of vanilla and oak...again, quite vinous. A little funk, but not a ton that I could detect. No alcohol smells.
T-Pleasantly tart, but really well balanced. The fruit flavors are concentrated and complex. I picked up cherries, green apples, and red wine flavors with a touch of oak. Not particularly funky or alcoholic.
M-Prickly carbonation, but beautifully balanced. Pretty dry from start to finish.
O-Really enjoyable. One of my favorite beers ever and easily my favorite of the style so far.
