This poured a vibrant tawny color, almost glowing. Real tart aroma, like sweet vermouth mixed with a whiskey that doesn’t stand up to the mixing, followed by a dash of bitters. The flavor follows suit, with a pleasing preserved cherry sweetness. Seek this one out.

Poured at The Beer Growler, Savannah, Georgia. Pours ruby red, nice white head, not much retention though, as is the norm with the style. Tart, funky, raspberry nose. Packs a warhead like sour punch, with the chardonnay barrels and raspberries taking just a little bit of the edge off. Excellent wild ale.
