I've had and shared numerous bottles of this over the last 6 months.. reviewed from a few sets of paper notes.

foamy lite tan head.. the brew is deep amber with beautiful ruby highlites.. surprising lace..

nose is tart and vinous (?) .. blackberry and sweet cherry skin.. pretty lactic... mild acetic qualities.... a bit of oak to add to an incredibly complex aroma..

a bit more vinegar than the aroma.. cherry essence is really brought out by some mild caramel sweetness... the big sour player is the lactic aging.. vinous qualities reminiscent of dry red wine.. pinot maybe.. pretty oaky about halfway through and all the way to the dry finish... nice fruity essence lingers on the palate forever.. medium body with abundant carbonation helps cut through the mouthfeel maybe a tad much... Drinkability is amazing.. soooo complex and leaving me want more... another sip.. another glass.
