look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A- pours a dark reddish shade of brown with a half finger head that fades nearly instantly. Some of the head sticks around on the top of the glass and around the edges...it just LOOKS evil, like some sort of witches brew...god its awesome, constantly bubbling.
S- strong cherries with a bit of a tartness to them. Getting some of an aroma of a wine type flavor as well. Great.
T- Awesome sour, tart, killer cherries. Its only mildly puckering...but I don't care. It kicks ass. The oak flavor seeps through a little bit too. Perfection.
M- well carbonated, great body. Balance is fantastic with the tartness.
D- the sourness could be a little too much for some...but not me. I love this. It packs a punch though, but you can't really taste the booze at all. First class sour from RR.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a dark amber, purplish ruby red color; reminiscent of a wine. Nice one finger slightly off-white head, which retains for several seconds or so.
S: Aromas are revealing a vinous, cabernet, wine ratio which is nicely supplemented by funky notes of figs, oak, cherry, plums, brown sugar, lemon, dark fruits and of course accompanied by sourness. The notes/intricacies on this guy are fantastic
T: Sour, tart, and funk are quite prevailing and pleasing. In keeping with the smell, the taste is that of a vinous, wine feel. Notes are that of grapes, raisins, lemon, cherry, slight vinegar, and a woody oak earthiness feel; very similar to the smell
M: Medium to Full body, medium carbonation, lots of sour funk, the presence of wine, and just an overall complex beer
O: Complex and incredible; being extremely well balanced and very smooth make this out to be a superbly refreshing beverage
Serving type: bottle
