A: Poured into an oversized wine glass to a deep brown with a slight reddish hue that is topped by a finger of dense off white head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of cherries, oak, vanilla, a nice blast of sourness and a hit of funk.
T: Taste is nice and sour on the front end with some sour cherry flavors, hint of vanilla, light funk, and a decent amount of oak and a hint of chocolate. Swallow is more sourness and cherry flavor with some lingering funk
M: This beer has a medium body with effervescent carbonation that is just a little prickly. The acidity makes this one have a fairly dry finish.
O: Overall this is an awesome beer with some great flavors and complexity. Definitely one to be sipped and savored. It tastes a lot like Rodenbach which is not a knock at all but Rodenbach does come in at a much friendlier price point. Worth a try if you can afford it and like the style. Otherwise just drink a Rodenbach.

A- Deep crimson mahogany body pours from the corked 750ml to a snifter. Small nutty tan cap falls down slowly to a foamy wide ring around the edges. Spotty lace remains on the glass after sipping.

S- Sour lactic and pedio bugs lead the aroma with a very vinous, red dark wine grape feel. Wet and smooth oak woodiness. Cherry, raspberry, mostly lactic lemon and slight acetic. Slight nutty, tannin and even toasty hints.

T- Again a whole ton of vinous properties with intense sour grapes as well as more general dark fruits and even a bit of raisin and dried figs. Nutty, toast and sour sour lactic acid and a hint of vinaigrette. Tart apple skins come to mind as well.

MF- Light to medium bodied with a big oily slickness and low carbonation. Intensely sour finish.

Sour as hell Cascade bacteria with red and brown flavors all around and plenty of dark vinous fruits to keep things interesting.
