The beer pours a dull copper color with a thin off-white head that fades quickly (negligible carbonation to regenerate) and has no sediment. The nose is slightly sweet and fruity (minimal nail polishy tart funk), candi sugar/raisin sweetness, and a hint of vanilla. The taste has a more aggressive, tart fruitiness upfront - most reminiscent of cherries - followed by some molasses sweetness, and finishes with lingering fruit, oak, and black tea bitterness. It's light-medium bodied and drinkable, has balanced tart acidity, fruit, and sweetness, relatively lacking in carbonation, minimal wood or bitterness (not a distinct cedar, but close), and leaves a pleasant, lingering fruitiness on the palate. This is a very approachable sour, it has great complexity without being too abrasive and wild - would drink again.
