4.18/5 rDev -8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A prayer to a deity to provide something, what? Pours a murky dark amber color almost boarder line brown. A soft pour did not leave much for a head. Not much on retention or lacing either.
The nose is complex. Some soft malt character with a hint of sourness. A very light subtle fruit aroma with a hint of cherry. Don't know if I would be able to pick it out if I didn't read it on the bottle. Some minor horse blanket but would have liked a touch more. Some oaky note on the back end. Some yeasty notes but kind of hidden with everything going on.
The taste is representative overall. The first taste is a light malt followed quickly by a tart taste with a lemon cherry mix. The tart taste lingers into the finish but blends well. The cherries note is light but hints are there. Some nice sour notes that come out but make way for a funk in the finish. Some leather and horse blanket notes. Some minor butyric notes and a touch of oak notes. Light vanilla. Good acidic finish.
The body is light to moderate. Limited carbonation but ok. The tartness leaves a good finish that really helps. But I would like a bit more complexity.

2010 Vintage on tap at Belmont Station
A: a medium brown color with a light red tint. Small off white head.
S: really nice cherries, some wine, and a little funk.
T: follows the nose. Tart cherries immediately, some blackberry maybe? A hint of oak from the barrel.
M: high carbonation. Nice and prickly. Refreshing dry finish.
O: freaking fantastic! Need to find more bottles for my cellar.
Serving type: on-tap
