Appearance: pours a mahogany red ale with a 1/2" head.

Smell: blackberries, merlot, and some sourness comes through to the nose.

Taste: blackberries, dates, merlot, some lemon zest, and a mild bitterness. Sourness is moderate.

Mouthfeel: crisp throughout with a bit of dryness late. Medium bodied beer.

Overall: an enjoyable sour that is slow sipping but very flavorful.

Smells like a tart and tannic red wine; gets fruitier as it warms. The dates and blackberries come through really nicely in the taste as well. Heavy oak. Awesome beer. *Purchased before the sellout*
