2010 vintage with a best after 11/01/11 bottle date.

Copper color with a tall head of sudsy brass colored foam.

Sweet and sour nose with hints of ripe cherry and oak.

Wow, completely different flavor than expected. I was thinking sour all the way, but not the case at all. A bit of a mellow start then a lactic acid and moderate sweet taste with a long hop like bitterness and oak presence. Red wine with just a hint of cherry underneath with a mild alcohol presence.

Smooth and full with just a touch of prickliness to the carbonation. Very dry on the finish.

I was pleasantly surprised by this. So glad it wasn't a big sour beer like I was expecting. This is actually quite drinkable, especially given the ABV. A wine-like brew. A nice change from what I usually drink and a solid overall beer.
