I am overwhelmed with appreciation for this tasty beverage. Pours dark amber/ruby (my lighting is not very good) with almost nonexistent white head. Feels very smooth in my mouth, and mouth-puckeringly sour. With grape, floral, and oak tones, it almost tastes like a fine red wine--maybe a Syrah?--and I mean that in a good way.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle poured into a Daredevil tulip glass.
A: Pours a murky brown with well over a finger of airy white head that disappears quickly and leaves only a thin collar. The viscosity does not look like any 10% beer I've ever had before! this looks much thinner and watered down.
S: A strong aroma of funk hits up front, and really takes control throughout. I get more wine notes from this than I do currants - and this is probably for the better.
T: Early in the glass the funk and sour is very dominant. Once my taste buds adjust, the dark fruits and wine shine through.
M: High level of carb, leaves a bitter dry finish.
O: This is such a well crafted beer, I enjoyed every aspect of it from first to last sip. When the sour starts to give way to flavor, it's amazing how everything comes together so well.
