750 ml bottle poured into a tulip.

A- Chestnut in color, with a mild amber hue. Some visible yeast. Creamy, faintly off-white head. Hangs low, but strong. Great lacing.

S- Sour cherry, caramel. Slight funk, t and some oak.

T- A bit of a sour roast. Caramel, cherry.

M- Sour and tangy. Sweetness is not so much. Finish is just a little dry.

O- Yummy. This isn't overly sweet, like other sour reds. Still nice and tart. And the slight roasty, wood-aged character is really nice.
