Clear but dark copper-red with a creamy tan ring. This dark copper body is beautiful.

Smell is toasty, cherry-like oak, balsamic vinegar, and pungently dank peach.

Taste is quite odd, bringing savory and charred herbal oak with juniper, semi-sour cherry, apple and grape.

A big froth lends to a soft, full body with a crisp, semi-dry finish.

This offering looks and tastes like the malt vinegar served with fish and chips. The nose is mildly sour thus indicating that the flavor might be palatable; alas this proved not to be the case.

2013 Edition -- Draft, Oct. 2015

A: Vinous-like aroma, followed by some grain and sharp sourness on the finish.

A: Bright orange color, quite clear with a very thin head.

T: Flavors remininiscent of wine are immediately noticeable. These flavors are followed by some grain and a sharp, acidity which finishes with a tart cherry sourness.

M: Light bodied with light carbonation.

O: Two years of aging, has increased the wine like aroma and tart cherry flavors. Strangely, the beer is still quite acidic. While enjoyable, the beer could benefit from rounding out this sharp acidity in the aroma and flavor.
