Would’ve enjoyed with more body, carbonation, and complexity. Pretty nose and nice cherry flavor but leaves me wanting more.

Appearance - Pours hazy ruby red color with very thin white head that is gone before you can sit the glass down, no lacing.

Aroma - Oak, vinegar, strong tart sour cherries, yeast.

Taste - Upfront lots of cherry, tart sour, nice. Very balanced it is not overly tart the barrel adds some nice depth.

Feel - Medium bodied pretty dry finish with a perfect amount of carbonation.

Overall - Very well done the flavors are just right and still not watered down with the lower ABV. Great body.

L: Had this on-tap, at Westbrook, poured into a snifter glass. Had a dark reddish color and a hazy texture. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that lasted a good amount of time. Not much lacing, though.

S: A good aroma of cherries, yeast, malt, a vinous quality, and oak barrels.

T: Tasted of moderate amount of Belgian-style yeast, a good amount of the vinous quality, some oaky notes, lots of cherries, and some other dark fruits as well. A very funky and surprisingly aggressive flavor. Definitely cherry-centric, but still tasty. Interesting and quite delicious.

F: An above average amount of carbonation with a somewhat dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is one of those well done and slightly offbeat wild ales. Certainly drinkable.
