Reviewed from notes. 375 ml bottle marked Batch 004X4 poured into a Vistory tulip...

A - Pours a dark brown color with no real light shining through. A very small cream colored head forms and recedes to a small, bubbly collar.

S - Acidic notes of vinegar and tart cherry. Oak, vanilla, some cabernet infuences as well. The sweetness from the fruits and the barrels mix well with the sourness.

T - Sweetness and sourness mix quite well here. Flavors of grape, cherry, oak tannins, and Brett funk. There's a tartness from the fruits that adds nicely to the lactic acidity going on. Really nice flavors.

M - Medium bodied beer with ample carbonation. Smooth and crisp with a slight dryness on the finish.

O - I enjoyed this one, although it was not as good to me as Supplication and Temptation. Really great American Wild from Vinnie.
