This is one of the sweetest sours i have ever had personally. My first impression was a hit of carbonated strawberry/cherry juice. It is a little sweet for my taste but you can tell this has a masterful balance. You get the oak (almost a woods) smell straight off the nose with some other red fruits.

Worth a try and if you are not sweet-adverse...worth a pack

11.2oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Clear golden body. Head builds fast, then recess . Lots of lace on the glass.

S: Sour. Cherries and white wine. A woody character mixed with the malts. Aromatic scent, very distinct.

T: Pucker up, this is a sour beer. Takes a few minutes to adjust to the acidic sour of this beer. Once adjusted, there are hints of fruits, specifically cherries, and a slightly vinous character. Has some earthiness to it as well, suspect that comes from the oak barrels it rests in during the aging process. No bitterness at all.

M: Light body, mildly carbonated, tries to be dry but then the sweetness of the malt kicks in then it goes dry again. Finishes neatly.

N: You couldn't session this beer, but why would you? Its something you bring out to change things up. It is so tart to start, but then it mellows. Would go well with a tangy cheese and some classical music. This is a beer to be sipped and savored.
