750 ml bottle poured into a teku

Appearance: Pours a dark copper color with 2 fingers of an off white head that settles to a thin cap and collar. Body is slightly hazy with some light visible carbonation.

Smell: Lots of fruitiness. Sour cherry, red wine, peach, overripe apple, wood, some mild funk, strawberry and maybe a bit of brown bread. Lots of different aromas going on here.

Taste: Red grape, oak, apple cider vinegar, lacto, light toasted malt, black currant and sour cherry. Some whiskey character come through in the finish but it's more of a scotch whiskey than bourbon or american whiskey. Sourness is relatively high, borders on puckering.

Mouthfeel: Lighter end of medium bodied, maybe a little thin, with light medium carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: Really good, complex wild ale. Well worth picking up, but wouldn't recommend to someone new to sours as this one is pretty intense.
