4.23/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours with a rust-tinged cherry color; the head rises to an inch and fades to a ringlet and archipelago; splashy lacing

Smell: Tart currant dominates the aroma though there is a dose of sweet cherry, as well; oak and vinous tones, too

Taste: The currant and cherry flavors intermingle as the acidity builds; in the middle, the sour currant dominates; oak and vinous tones merge into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; puckery

Overall: A nice blend of fruit here displays the sweet and tart but like all of the beers in the series, very acetic

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy ruby hue with a thin pink head that fades to leave thin wisps.

S - Aromas of nice sweeter dark cherries, lightly tart black currants. There is a random vinegar aspect that clashes with the fruit. Decent oaky barrels.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with a fair amount of toasted oak, nice tart black currants nice a bright, good jammy cherry notes, solid acidity and tart cherry notes.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, super acidic and flemmy.

O - Overall this was a rather solid beer. The fruits are pleasant but the oak is a bit too buttery.

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a bright rosy purple-ruby-red color, pink purple rosy creamy decent head, decent lacing

Nose loads of berry, boysenberry cherry currant syrupy, a bit of weird acid mess, super dark purple berry jam, mild tart sour acidic, mild toasted buttery oak

Taste starts quite sour tart berry, big currant and boysenberry like, maybe blueberry tart fleshy, big acidity, mild cherry jam, lots of jammy friuits and super acidic funk, bright acid burn, big toasted buttery oak as well, sticky flemmy finish

Mouth is med bod jammy a bit syrupy and tons of acidity, decent carb, flemmy

Overall pretty nice, acidity was very big, but otherwise good
