2012 Enigma 4-pack bought at the New Glarus brewery.

Appearance is truly unique; clear red in deep spots, but goes to a dusky orange color in peripheries. Really attractive. Smell is acidic, vinegar and tart cherries, and a hint of woodiness. Taste is fantastic. Tart cherries and oaky-ness follow where the nose left off, tart cherries up front. You also get yeast funkiness in the finish that I couldn't pick up on the nose. Very unique taste. Mouthfeel is quite crisp and refreshing as well, with slight pokes from the acidity; however, if rolling in the mouth too much, the same acidity can get to you.
I'd highly recommend searching for this if you are into sours or fruit beers. New Glarus has once again worked magic in this style. Makes me glad I still have 2 more (shared these 2), and a bottle of Serendipity to get into. Cheers!
