Down the middle pour brings forth a thick off-white foam that quickly fizzles down to nothing. Deep burnt orange body when held to the light that is filled with carbonation zinging all around.

The aroma is full of the souring bacteria, gets a little funky, currant, and cherry. Comes off like an Oud Bruin.

Plenty of fruitiness comes off with currant, red grape, and tart apple. The oak from the Cabernet barrels comes out slightly. Nice little musty funk hangs out at the end. No hint of the 10%.

Fairly smooth medium body. Medium tartness on the palate. Finishes dry.

Nicely balanced for such a big sour beer. Really well done beer that has great Cab qualities imparted into it.
