4/5 rDev -10.7%
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.

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.
