Dark brown with an amber tinge when held to the light, topped with 4 fingers of orangey beige head.

Smells sour of balsamic vinegar, funk, earthy, heather, leather, and slightly fruity of cherries and dates.

Sour smoothness. Sour of lemons, balsamic vinegar, lightened by an absent or phantom sweetness, cherries, funk, cellar, leather and peat.

Medium, acidic and dry body with a smooth, foamy, and light feel to it.

2015 Project. Got in Rochester, NY, drinking in New Hamburg, ON, July 28th, 2018. Excellent for the style!

Deep brown in color with a very murky complexion. There's a fingernail of beige around the rim. I'm smelling tart cherries, either Merlot or Cabernet, and just a suggestion of the sweet bourbon. I'm tasting massively tart cherries, Merlot, and a touch of bourbon. The mouth is very viscous and smooth, which is very unique for a wild ale.

Full and barrely and lovely. Lacto tartness hides the booze beautifully. Blended such that neither the vinous nor the bourbon-y taste wins out. Closer to a classic Flanders Red than expected. Oh boy.
