From a 375 ml bottle (Batch 8) into a tulip.

A-An uninspired light brown, one-finger head recedes almost immediately and leaves very little lacing. The beer is reddish/brown in color and mostly clear. A few visible streams of thick carbonation appear after the head goes away.

S-Tart and vinous. I got tart red fruit like cherries and cranberries. There is a hint of oak and earth...and some vanilla.

T-The taste follows the smell pretty closely, i.e., a pleasing mix of tart red fruit and some oak. It is not the most concentrated taste, but it is pleasing nonetheless. The brew is pretty sweet throughout and the alcohol is well integrated.

M-Not awful...but probably the weak point for this beer. Medium body and a little undercarbonated for my taste.

O-I like this beer quite a bit, it has a really nice, well-balanced smell and flavor profile that not many brews can match. That being said, the appearance is underwhelming and the mouthfeel is a little dead.
