Notes from 8/5. Poured into a snifter.

A: Ruby-red grapefruit body. Zero head and little lacing.

S: Vinegar upfront. Sweet and sour cherry (like a cherry warhead) with a touch of oak to round it out.

T: Sweet, tart cherry moves to slight vinegar followed by puckering sourness. A little bit of oak in the finish evens everything out.

M: Light, clean finish. Low carbonation.

O: Initially, the smells and flavors coming from this beer were overwhelming. After the first couple sips my nose and taste buds adjusted. Absolutely delicious.

Reviewed from notes. 375ml bottle shared by Dan - thanks. Bottled March 6, 2014.

A: Pours a hazy ruby red grapefruit juice color under a 1/4-inch thick white head which fades leaving some spots.

N: Bright sour cherries with prominent skin and juice, good funk.

T: Crisp tart funky cherries. Fruity.

M: Light body and light carbonation. Tart and fruity finish.

O: Puckering and bright cherry with funk. Yes, please.
