look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A- Murky burgandy/brown body with no transparency. Bubbly cream colored head that stays around for a while.

S- Has notes of toasted malts, along with a lot of acidic, sour fruit aromas. Fruity, nutty, malty, not an over the top aroma, but pleasant.

T- A hint of malt gives way to big sour fruit notes. Mainly sour cherries, with lots of smooth oaky flavors coming in towards the middle through the finish. Very tart, with a dry and oaky finish.

M- High carbonation, very tart and acidic, slight tingle on the tongue with a lingering finish.

O- Very nice beer, very tart and sour, but complex and not overpowering. I am surprised at how much wood cuts through the tartness.
