L — Very slightly hazy golden orange body with a half finger of cream colored head produced with aerated pour. Minimal retention or lacing
S — Sour cherries, funk, lemon juice, tart raspberry, pear… definitely smells very sour
T — Apple cider vinegar, oaky tannins, lime juice, quince, unsweetened cranberry juice, lemongrass, rye spiciness
F — Tart and lactic! but lively. Medium- mouthfeel, medium- carb. Lasting sourness on the finish
O — A bit too sour for my liking, lacks a center-of-balance. Still a fairly decent wild ale

Copper to amber hued with no discernible head whatsoever. The aroma is tart cherries and woodsy oak. I'm tasting plenty of tart cherries, woodsy oak, and earthy rye. The mouth is very dry, highly carbonated, and crisp. Aggressive acidity.

2015 vintage. The spiciness of the rye is nicely showcased through both the aroma and flavor, giving an almost cinnamon-type aroma that pairs wonderfully with the vanilla/oak. Quite fruity, though bracingly sour which detracts from everything else going on with the beer imo.
