Huge thank you to mrbubbler for this treat!
Appearance. Pours a hazy, deep burnt orange/amber with a finger of amber tinted cream coloured head.
Smell. Cherries and green apples. funky old barrel, lactic sourness and vinegar, and a bit of caramel. Nice.
Taste. Sour cherry, funky brett and dank old wood, apples and melons, and a touch of vinegar and caramel.
Mouthfeel. Fairly light body (maybe a little watery even), medium-low fine carbonation.
Overall. A very nice sour that has everything you could could ask for in the style.

[A] Not much of a head on the pour - less than a quarter finger. Light to medium tan, foamy and quick to fizz out. Retention is short lived and neither a collar or film was ever much of a consideration. The body comes across somewhere in between maroon and burgundy. Very still looking. No lacing.
[S] Intoxicatingly bright fruit aromas. Cherry dominates followed by a nice backing of raspberry, light oak and a mild vinous quality. Fantastic. At its deepest layer, and only at warmer temperatures, a hint of rubber cement pokes through, but it is barely noticeable and hardly interferes with the nose.
[T] Cherry, raspberry, black berry and currants - definitely fruit forward. Ample acidity with great lactic flavor. Whatever yeast strain was used, it was a good choice. This beer is about as quaffable as it gets.
[M] Semi-aggressive mouthfeel with mild sourness, generous acidity and the perfect level of effervescence. Medium-full body.
[O] Honestly, this beer is fantastic and has earned every bit of the high score that it's received. Drinking exceptionally well right now.
