Poured into fluted glass from a 375. Batch 006.

A: Slightly hazy dark copper / ruby red color. Fizzy light tan head, rose about 2-3 fingers and receded to a mm or so of froth. Not much lacing.

S: Oak, yeast, vinegar, leather, tobacco, sour apples, cherries. Smells very tart, almost made my eyes water when I popped the cork. Definite dark fruit Cabernet aroma when you get a full whiff.

T: Mildly tart, cherries, vinegar, oak, vanilla, leather, sour yeast. The finish is very savory, dry and vinous, not quite as crisp and mouthwatering as many sours tend to be. Wow, really impressed with this.

M/O: Medium bodied, high carbonation, and just.... freaking delicious. This is the best example of a wild ale I have had.
