Bottled on April 26, 2011.

Pours ruby red with a dark pink one finger head which vanishes immediately, leaving no lacing. The aroma has tart cherries, barnyard funk, and some oak.

Tastes both sweet and tart with tart cherries, oak, funk, and Belgian yeast. Not as acidic as many sours, but there is still some acidity present.

Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. There is a tart cherry aftertaste. Finishes dry. A very well made sour. Too bad Shelton Brothers pulled out of Minnesota. I don't know when or if I will get a chance to pick up another bottle.
