Review from memory, I think I sampled this about a year ago. Tart, cherries, grapes, vinegar. Dry mouthfeel with a very sour aftertaste. Very refreshing.

Very similar to the beer at Toronado. Even after a weekend full of sours, this was a good one.

Possibly clouded auburn colored beer. Head is a good sized pile of kahki colored tight foam which fades to a sheet and a ring. Sweet and tart cherries, light wood musk, interesting, unique floral, strawberries and cream, and a variety of other subtle aroma nuances. Taste is loaded with tart, acidic cherries, smooth woodiness, all sorts of fermented fruits, packed into a light fluid body. Carbonation is softly blended throughout. Pitted fruits and berries, all soaked in cherry juice and tangy. Mouthfeel is fantastically smooth.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into pint glass

A: almost no head whatsoever dirty brown red hue with a slightly hazy body.

S: wine grapes, vinegar, oak, apples, maybe a little cherry

T: nice wine taste grapes, cherries, maybe very light vinegar slight apple lots of oak barrel a little bit of a musty taste

M: very soft, carbonation is almost non existent almost no bitterness makes it seem like drinking a wine

O: This beer has such a nice flavor. Its got a nice wine oak flavor the soft carbonation I am not as crazy about, but otherwise it is a great beer.
