3.73/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours an effervescent pink/amber with some really fast falling cream colored head, nice loud hiss to this. Zero head retention and lacing

S Faint raspberry and cherry

T Tart, oaky dryness with raspberry . Faint vanilla notes as this warms
MF Medium body with delicate carbonation. Dry and Tart finish

Drinks pretty easy for the ABV. Good effort

Poured from 750 mL into Allagash glass.

Thin head that quickly dissipates. Lacing is solid, though. Smells of the usual suspects in wine barrel-aged sours -- white wine, and in this case, raspberries and cherries. Tart, but not as tart as let's say, brews from the Almanac Farm to Barrel series. Cherries hit first, then the raspberreis do. Could use a bit more oak but that's just my personal preference. Carbonation is good, again very reminiscent of wine. Overall it's definitely a solid brew with amazing artwork (someone upload a photo!) -- Anthem nailed this one.

Perfect red pour with a thin foam head. Scents of cherries, pinot grapes, and raspberries hit the nose. Has a tartness that is rich but not overbearing. This is a rich ale that is best sipped while chilled. I found this like a sour version of an ice wine.
