Smells of red wine and tart fruit. A vinegary rainbow of flavor in the front, 3.5 of a possible 5 puckers in the back.

Great oaky, sour wine nose. Flavor is vinous and acetic, with toasted oak and cherry. Somewhat floral and malty. As it warms, the barrel notes meld seamlessly with the sour character and light base beer sweetness.
