A - Looks so good in the snifter. 1 finger of white suds atop a crystal clear, ruby red, ultra-effervescent body. Beautiful.
S - Brings back memories of Enigma. Oak, wine, sour cherries, cinnamon, Brett.
T - Incredible. Super tart cherries, dry, oaky finish, coupled with a puckering sourness. Tons of complex, Bretty/earthy notes peek in and sneak about during the drink. The more you drink of it, the more the subtle nuances come to the surface, such as the underlying brown ale, green sour apples, and spices. The thing is, it's a lot "cleaner" than a lot of the sours I've tasted prior. Vinnie really understands these wild little monsters.
M - Thinner, and crisp/sparkly. It's spot on.
D - Sourness is the only thing that could be considered a limiter. This beer is near perfect in every way.
Notes: Is it better than Enigma? Maybe. But is it worth the price of admission? Not so much. Enigma was like, $9 or $10 for a FOUR PACK. This was $15 I think? Crazy.
Regardless, I've been Supplicated.

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.
