This is a delicious and unique, but very one-sided beer. I was expecting one-sidedness, but not this much vinegary sourness since the bottle only indicated that it was Belgian-style and not that it was a sour. I consider that to be very pertinent information and am baffled as to why they wouldn't mention it. I like the vinegary, unripe cherry flavour, though.

Bottle into goblet-style wine glass. 2012 vintage.

A- Rich mahogany brown, one finger of tannish head dissipates quickly

S- funky yeast, wine, sour cherries, then some oak. Hint of malt. As it warmed, it was like Bourbon county with wine- noticeable oak.

T- Sour cherries against a brown ale- a little charred malt at the end. Then some weird funk. Leans toward high bitterness.

M- Really nice mouthfeel, very easy, smooth feeling.

O- For me the best part of this is the smell- quite good. I think the taste needs the most work- It doesn't stand up the smell in complexity. I would not buy again at the $18 a bottle price.
