A: Cloudy tan color with an orange hue. Persistent white ring makes up the head.
S: Potent combo of fruit and vinegar. Same fruity yeast/oak aroma as the NG fruit beers, albeit much more acidic. A little nutty brown malt somewhere underneath. Interestingly, aroma becomes more lactic with time.
T: Moderate initial sourness, followed by rich oak/malt combo. Cherries and vanilla are complimented by a mild lactic acidity. Flavors are pretty rounded several years after bottling.
M: Not a ton of carbonation left, but enough. Body is medium, acidity noticeable.

Nice beer, though better when fresh.
