375 ml bottled on 02/11/2014

A: Dark brown, almost crimson. 2 finger head when poured. Thin bit of it remains during the 30 min I spend drinking it. Nice stuff.

S: Tart cherries, dark grapes. Some notes of Cab and oak. I've probably put my stupid nose in this thing 50 times already. Wow.

T: Puckering sour on the front of the tongue, but in no way overbearing. Light malt backbone and those Cab flavors come through. A fantastic, complex sour.

M: Perfect amount of carbonation. Almost impossible to tell this is 10% ABV.

O: Probably the best sour I've had to date. Incredible.
