4.39/5 rDev +2.8%
Small bubbly head, about one finger. Light brown with a organe hue in the light. Smells very sour. That's all I can pick up, maybe a little bit of oak. Taste is an absolute delight, sour, but not puckering. Initial sweetness fades into a nice fruity taste, cherry, apple, with some oak on the finish. This is really good. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel, leaves bubbles on my tongue, making me want more immediately. Really smooth with some nice tartness. Almost didn't buy this, hopefully I can go grab another bottle tomorrow.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Poured in nearly pitch black conditions, but it's an amber body. Clear. Almost no head.
Smell - Bourbon and wine barrels smell great. Bretty. Some acidity. Cherry and caramel malt.
Taste - Very similar to the smell. More caramel. Cherry fruits. Musty brett. Vanilla and oak. Not all that sour, but it's kinda acetic in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium heavy. Minimal sourness. Well carbonated.
Overall - Complex barrel character. Reminiscent of a Cascade.
