4.21/5 rDev +1.2%
As expected a rather clear reddish orange body with a nice thick creamy dark cream head. Pretty nice presentation all and all.
Sour cherries, sugar, and hints of vinegar.
This is a great beer. The cherries give balance to a very nice puckering sour beer. A good amount of vinegar and tartness.
The carbonation seem a touch off to me. It's perhaps just a bit to explosive on the tongue. Still a minor complaint that doesn't hurt this beer much.
This isn't Rodenbock but this is a must try and the beer is priced extremely well.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Best by 14/06/2014
A: Pours a clear dark rube with a one finger slightly tan head. Lots of visible carbonation in the body. Head sticks around as a thin covering for quite a while. Leaves some good lacing on the glass.
S: Hits your nose with a sweet, fruity, sour blend of malts and yeast. Vinegar and oakiness permeates as it warms. Cherry comes through as well as dark fruity malts.
T: This is a tart and sour beer with a great sweetness and fruit. Strong cherry and some real good oak. On the sweeter side of the spectrum.
M: Very crisp, lots of carbonation combined with a fairly thick mouthfeel with a bit of a syrup feel. Dry feel, alcohol is lost in the flavor.
Overall this is a phenomenal beer, very easy to drink and an amazing flavor. Would love to drink this all the time.
