Single finger tan head on a near jet black body. Nice lacing. Aroma is fantastic with sour cherries, red wine and grape notes. Flavor is a little smokey with sour cherries, Pinot red wine and raspberries. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This is an excellent sour with the unique wine barrel aging. In my experience wine barrel aging can ruin beers but this one is great and a must try.
