This pours a deep purple. At first I thought how beautiful a red it was, but it's far too dark to be anything but midnight purple, the color of blueberries, dark cherries, acai. There's absolutely no head, I had to agitate it to get any at all, only for it to fade almost instantly. Damn tart. Tart cherries, sour, a bit of sweetness on the end. Almost a cherry juice quality, but the acidity does a mighty fine job of balancing it. A touch of bitterness, which could be tannins from the fruit skin or barrel aging. I'm really enjoying the puckering, cherry juice, fruity sour quality this beer has. Almost a shame I drank it alone.

Dark purple and mostly opaque. Looks like grape, blueberry and black currant juice. No head to speak of.

Mildly tart aroma with lots of cherries.

Flavor follows the nose. Hint of oak. Sweetness is well balanced by the acid.

Medium to full bodied. Somewhat low carbonation. Dry finish yet sticky from the fruit sugars.

Overall, a very enjoyable sour fruit beer.

Deep, burgundy red that is the color of nice sweet cherries. Tastes like straight juice from the cherries themselves, with a nice tart tinge to them. Delicious and one of the best from the bottleshare.
