Thanks to Thomas & Jenny for sharing this! Quick review from written notes.

Poured into a small tulip glass, the color is a dark reddish brown with a crimson highlight. A thin layer of parchment-tinged foam settles on top, it has a creamy surface texture and leaves behind some spotty lacing.

Cherry skins, minerals, very lightly acidic fruit in the aroma.

Puckering sour cherry, light notes of wet wood, malty in the middle with a light spiciness. The beer is medium bodied and spritzy, with a dry finish. Moderate barrel character that lends essential complexity. A nice example of the style, recommended.
