A: Pours a nice dark reddish brown with a small wispy white head. No real retention or lace.

S: Lots of tart cherry, vinegar, and oak.

T: Flavor matches the aroma. Nice and tart dark berries. Sour acidic vinegar with a nice dose of wood.

M: Medium in body, bubbly carbonation, good.

D: Pretty good, a solid sour. Tough one to drink all alone though.
