I had this on tap at When Pigs Fly, initially at a beer dinner, then later for a more in depth tasting.

In a snifter the beer was the color of a dirty penny with a small tan head. There was a little bit of lace.

Aroma was tart and fruity, and vinous.

Great taste. Sour apple and red wine. A little vanilla.

This beer was tart and sour and dry. The alcohol was well-hidden.

I hope this stays in the lineup for a while.
