Pours a clear amber brown with hints of pink. Bubbly light tan head that faded fairly quickly into a medium collar. Pretty good lacing and decent legs. Aroma is tart dark cherry, cranberry and black raspberry; behind that there's some earthy woodiness. When I swirl the glass, the vinous woodiness really comes alive. Taste follows aroma with some wine barrel resin. Little bit of funk but the brett is majorly covered up by the sour lacto at this point in the aging process. Taste is also extremely tart and reminds me of a very sour jolly rancher. Very fruity, but quite sour. Medium carbonation and body.
