4.65/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours dark ruby red with a quickly dissipating head. No lace and like a red wine leaves a gentle coating on the glass.
Smell: Cherries and grapes gone wild. The classic barnyard funk surrounds a very fruity concoction of delicious sour cherry and hints of that vinous red grape that is buried under the cherry.
Taste: Big blast of fruit and sourness. Although powerful, the tartness doesn't overpower this beer at all. The beer develops as you drink it from straight up cherry sourness to a funky undercurrent of fresh red grapes and berries. Overall this beer is so complex just like its sister consecration. I feel like I need a PhD to wrap my head around it. No real hints on the high alcohol content.
Mouthfeel: Bouncy on the tongue from the high carbonation, but overall fairly viscous and smooth. Body is about medium to heavy.
Drinkability: This beer is truely great stuff, while it's hard to really put this stuff down to quickly...It's not hard to finish a glass or two. Like I said about consecration, this is a special occasion type of brew.
Serving type: on-tap

4.36/5 rDev -4.6%

Ruby red over brownish hues with a tan head that goes quickly. Minimal lacing with big sediment at the bottom. Tart cherries, Pinot noir wine and oak notes in the nose. Big tart cherry flavor supported by wine like qualities cloaked in oaky notes in the background. Tartness is cut toward the end by the malt backbone, making it sour and funky but reeling it in before it gets too far out of line. Puckering and tart with vibrant carbonation and a bone dry finish. A sipper for sure and a fantastically different beer.
