A: ruby red. Hazy. Small off-white head.

S: sweet. Large berry notes. Vinegar.

T: tart. Oak. Cherry. Lingering tartness. Sour. Vinegar.

M: high carbonation. Medium-light body. Puckering. On the dry side? It's difficult for me to tell if this is slightly sweet, or dry; because of the tartness.

O: fantastic sour. Complex flavors that are balanced very well. Will buy again if I am lucky enough to find it.

On-tap 8/3/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a coppery red color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains tart berries, wild Belgian yeast and very light malts.

T: The taste starts out tart with flavors of cherries, grapes and raspberries. Then some wild Belgian yeast comes in. The malt character is thin but on-target for the style and provides a good balance. The after-taste is tart.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
