A: pours with an off-white, quickly dissipating, ring of foam, with a muddy, red to brown color
S: immediate oak and funk, followed by cherry and malt, a wonderfully woody nose
T: wine, cherry and oak right off the bat, with a subtle suggestion of malt/red wine vinegar, quite sour, but with enough sweetness to balance the beer
M: dry and decently effervescent
O: It's phenomenal, what else is there to say other than that? Every beer has a season, and this beer is no exception, I couldn't have it all the time, but it is truly a magnificent ale
