Reddish-brown with a thick tan, slightly pink blanket.

Smell is toasty cherry, oak, pepper, and olive brine.

Taste is milky oak, cherry, very well balanced and quaffable, with a slight sting and blackberry.

Semi-dry and crisp.

Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin white head. Head dissipates leaving a ring of white foam along the outside of the beer.

Smell is vinegary with some notes of tart cherry, tobacco, oak, wood, fresh sawdust. Very rustic and earthy.

Taste has notes of tart cherry, oak, wood, vinegar, slightly tart. Probably could be more tart.

Feel has mild carbonation, slightly tart and bone dry.

Overall a nice our bruin, but just not good enough to justify the price tag.
