A. It has a red-orange color with a limited head and limited lace. It is opaque.
S. smells like vinegar.
T/m. This is extremely acidic and has a strong vinegar taste. Full bodied with a long finish.
O. The cork says this was bottled in 2007 and if that's true then it may have been sitting in Muggs Tavern that whole time. I think it is just too old and past it's prime.

750 mL bottle poured into a plastic cup. 2008 bottle.

Appearance - Light reddish body. Small white head. A few wisps.

Smell - Cherry and a ton of acidity. Little bit of hay. Some faint funk, but it's there.

Taste - Grain is strangely the first flavor. Then sour cherry. And I mean really sour cherry. Intense sourness of all kinds. Lactic and even some acetic acid. All other components are masked.

Mouthfeel - Overly sour. Medium carbonation. Dry body.

Overall - This is way too sour. Good otherwise.
