Poured into La Fin Du Monde tulip. Thanks to Damico for really hooking me up on a recent trade! Batch 004X4.

Appearance: Pours a deep brown/almost purple color with no head (is that normal?). No lacing.

Nose: Well some definite funk and wild berries. Blackberries, currants, and cherry. Some oak linger.

Taste: Great sour character. Initial blast of lemon tartness. Deep cherry, some Pinot Noir notes, okak, and lively vinegar. Great flavor profile.

Mouth: Puckeringly tart. The alcohol is well hidden and allows the fine currant flavor and dry puckering to come through.

Drink and Overall: I gotta knock the appearance for lack of carbonation. I expected a little more head, and therefore more nose. It was wonderful, but I will update if I taste again with different reaults.

Batch 001x3

This is my 1800th review, holy shit.

Poured into a chalice a nice ruby color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger fizzy off-white head, very minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty/yeasty, oak, cherries, currants. The taste is malty/yeasty, soury, slight oak, funky, cherries/currants. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a tasty brew, for some reason, I'm not really into the AWA as much as I use to be.
