Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled on 11/4/13.

Pours a murky dark honey brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a rich 1 finger light cream colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a clear dark mahogany. Lacing is stringy and patchy with great stick. Very nice.

Nose is tart strawberry and raspberry puree with a bit of woodiness in the back. Dense but surprisingly mellow.

Opens tart cherry and other red fruit. Slight touch of vinegar mixed with oak in the middle. Vinous. Great balance between sweet and sour. Tartness builds towards the end but integrates well with a big fruit and barrel presence at the finish. Accented aftertaste. Not too vinegary or acidic. Real smooth.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly prickly but smooth in the mouth and goes down filmy and easy. Finishes messy with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Very drinkable.

This beer delivers all the flavor of the style without the harsh acidity. Really nice and one of my favorites in the category.
