In review, a 2010 vintage.

A - Pours and amber red color with a light white covering and soapy white lacing ring.

S - Cherry tartness with light to moderate funk.

T - Tart bitter cherries from start to finish with some light caramel malt base mixed in, mild tart bitter finish, oak.

M - Medium to heavy medium body, light pricklies on the tongue, the tartness makes the tongue water on the side with a dry finish on top. Ends with tart/sour cherry coating and lingering bitterness.

O - Aged nicely.
