Batch 007. Poured from a bottle into a Brooklyn tulip. Beautiful clear,dark copper-amber color with a thin head. The nose is extremely active. There are notes of cherries, bubblegum, sour apples, candy, and a definite barnyard funk, all harmoniously blended together.
The flavor is highly acidic and slightly tannic. I get flavors of tart cherries in the front of my mouth, then at mid-palate the beer takes on a stony champagne-like dryness. It has an excellent finish. The acidity dries your mouth and the sour cherry and champagne flavors linger for a long time, making you practically salivate for another taste. The beer has a light to medium body, but is not as highly carbonated as I expected it to be. It is extremely easy to drink.
This is a world class beer. The flavor is aggressively sour, but there's an underlying sweetness and a nice dry finish to complement the tartness. It's one of the most refreshing beers I've ever had and is very reminiscent of Rodenbach Grand Cru (in overall drinking experience if not in flavor). Every beer fan should seek this one out and try it at least once. I can't imagine how difficult this beer must be to make.

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.

On tap at the RR Brewpub.
A: deep orange-amber; clear; Large creamy bone-colored head is fairly furable and leaves some lacing.
Aroma: about as good as this style gets (for me).
Flavor: excellent very tart and fruity flaovr. Rather subtle effects from the pinot noir barrel aging, especially in terms of woodiness. Excellent lingering, midly tart aftertaste.
FeeL; smooth; medium-light body; good low carbonation; near puckering tartness.
Serving type: on-tap
