Poured into snifter. Bottle date 2-11-14. Excited for this one, here we go!
A-beautiful dark red without any head. Almost exactly matches the color of the label.
S- cherries, vanilla, musky funk, oak
T-sour cherries, vanilla, chocolate, fizzy carbonated funk, dark fruits
M- light to medium, fairly fizzy. No head.
O- so well balanced. I don't normally enjoy sours but this is easy to drink and delicious.

Appearance is maroon and slightly hazy with minimal head.
aroma is cherries, oak, dark fruit and musty funk
taste is cherries, slight vanilla and oak. Lots of barrel. Some musty Ness. Pretty tart.
Mouthfeel is medium to thin. Pretty crisp and not much lingering flavor.
overall it's a great example of a sour ale. We'll balanced and unique.

T: Very sour and funky with a cherry, currant and chocolate aftertaste. M: medium bodied at first, but it does not last long. O: A very good sour, however I prefer Supplication.
