1.7/5 rDev -58.9%
12oz single bottle poured into an ephemere glass.
Appearance - Two fingers of reddened head that fizzes with acidity and sourness. The beer is a deep plum color, though it retains more of a seedy brown hue than purple. A bit musky.
Smell - Smells oddly of Brett yeast to me, and reminds me more an American wild ale. Tart dark cherry and plum with a light grainy smell.
Taste - Oh my. I wasn't quite expecting such a strong assault of cherry and pomegranate. The fruit and alcohol destroy the palate, but not in a good way. Heavy carbonation combines poorly with the beers ingredients.
Mouthfeel and Drinkability - Quite unpleasant if you ask me. Fizzy cherries are soaked in alcohol and then smashed in the mouth. The alcohol is unpleasantly mis-balanced, and the aftertaste is among the worst I've encountered. I wouldn't call it sour, more funky and odd.
