Sampled on tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston TX; April 2012
The beer arrives from the tap topped by a creamy, amber tinged, tan colored, one-finger thick head. The beer is a concentrated amber color. The nose smells primarily of lactic acidity, with a backdrop of fruity notes that hint at cherries. There is a touch of oxidized malt richness here as well some caramelized malt aromatics.

The flavor is definitely tart, even leaning towards sour. It is quite dry up front, but does pick up some sweetness and even an acetic bit as it moves towards the finish. The acidity is predominantly lactic in character, which is good. Other flavors of cherry, some earthiness, maybe a touch of oak and some astringency are noticeable here.

This beer is actually fairly simplistic, it is satisfying and tasty though.
