Small corked and caged 375ml. from batch #1. The cork comes out with quite a loud pop. Appears a murky deep orange with good sized off white head. Pretty good amount of sticky scattered lace covering the glass. The tart aroma hits you as soon as you pour this. As it warms funky yeast and woody scents come out more. Lighter notes of cherries and other lighter fruits appear at times as well. Flavor is equally complex with a big tartness and a smaller balancing sweetness coming on strongest. Plenty of interesting yeast things going on including the brett funkiness. Oak notes and sour cherries play into it as well. Some vinous notes at times. Dry sourness on the aftertaste. About a medium body with a dry, tart and tangy feel to it. I found it also quite refreshing. Very interesting stuff it keeps you coming back for more trying to figure out every thing that is going on. By the end of the glass though my palette seemed a bit wore out from all the flavors but I would have gladly drank a 750 of this. Excellent all around brew a must try.

375ml bottle dated 1/7/14 poured into a tulip
A: Medium brown with a slight reddish tint; its head starts out at one-finger, settles to 1/2 finger then lingers at that level
S: Intoxicating with sour cherries, a hint of vinegar, subtle wine/oak notes, and a mix of fresh herbs
T: Can't get better. Sour cherries, cranberries, some barnyard frunk, grass, subtle oak and a very long finish
M: Surprisingly light with pleasant carbonation; quite acidic
O: I don't think I've ever taken smaller sips of a beer trying to savor every last bit. This is fantastic in its complexity and also very refreshing. Wonderful beer
