A dark ruby colored beer with a nice dense ivory colored head on top. Rich and fruity up front on the nose. The currants come through nicely here. First sips gives a great introduction to this beers wild side. Not immensely sour, but a nice tartness with a bit of a vinegary note and sour cherry. Nicely carbonated and a fairly smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
