My face doesn't know what to do while drinking this beer. It is sour, sweet, and savory. Umami, I don't want the taste to end and luckily it doesn't end quickly. Fantastic!


It is a murky red color, just light enough to see the delicious bits floating around. A terrific sour cherry flavor coats the tongue combined with a tingle of the bubbles is a fantastic experience. It has an ever so slightly oak caramel after taste hitting all the taste receptors.

One of my all time favorite beers.
Pours a hazy burgundy, with lots of creamy, lingering head.
Lots of lacing. The nose is packed with earthy brettanomyces funk,
tart fruit, banana and oak. The overall effect is vinous, almost similar
to a cabernet. Mouthfeel is full and sticky. Prickly and tart on the back of the throat. Cherry sweetness and oaky vanilla flavors are first and foremost, followed by light, grainy malts and green grape sweetness. The finish is a fantastic mess of boozy, funky, sour flavors. Totally worth the high price tag.
