Had this several times at the bar and got a few bottles to age.
A: Deep Rusty Red in color, Good clarity. Maintains a pretty decent head depending on the pour, we saw some really nice heads and some not so good ones. Lacing was as expected not as sticky as Pliny but still appealing.
S: Not as sour or pungent as I was expecting and marking the only thing in this beer that I feel could be improved upon. Subtle citrus, spicy, some Bretts and other Belgian yeast notes.
T: WOW. So complex. Really cool to drink a few glasses over an hour or two and pick out the brews that make up this amazing beer. Consecration being right up front but you get hint of Beatification as well as oaky damnation. So many flavors, combined so well. This beer is worth pursuing and worth aging, i can't wait to see how the flavor develops! Dunno this doesn't have a better review so far but I think over time it will climb.
M: Amazing, light on the alcohol well hidden, Carbonated perfectly.
O: Vinne has done it again, another World class beer that knocks your socks off!!!!

This beer reminds me of Consecration at its finest moment. There is a bit more brightness and effervescence as well as a more rounded sweetness to balance the vinegary tartness. The fruit shines bright with a deep dark unripened cherry flavor. There is a richness that this blend provides while still being quenching. The blend is so well balanced that I really have little to add other than being fortunate enough to try this beer.

750 ml bottle into a teku.
dark ruby red color with a great foamy head. smell of currants , cherries. taste starts out with a big amount tartness...cherry flavor is prominent right after and the finish is very wet and has a lingering fruity taste that coats your mouth. quite complex and you can tell its a blend. body is medium and carbonation is medium as well.
overall blows consecration out of the water, which is what its reminiscent of. excellent.
