prune colored ale with little head, aromas of brett and bread.. taste is all funk moderated by sweet flavors of currents and red wine... Awesome sour flavor with depth and concentration... mouth puckering! Another RR sour winner...

Bottled on 2/11/14. Opened on 8/15/14

A - Amber red with a tiny bit of clarity, a touch of head.

A - Oak from the barrel, wine, cherries

T - Strong ale, with an oaky wine barrel flavor. It does not get any better than this

M - Medium body, oily slick

O - Incredible beer! One of my favorites of all time
