On tap at the Portland Pub. Forgot to grab the down and dirty on this one.

A - Served a light and clear reddish hue with a huge white head that fades down to a thin film. Lots of lacing.

S - Lots of cherry and dark fruit. Oaky and some vanilla as well.

T - Similar to the nose. Fruity, cherry, Brett, oak, slight funk and subtle vanilla.

D - Great carbonation and a thinner body.

O - Another solid sour from the big D. Cherry dominated and not over sweet or tart.

A slight mix up brought this beer to my table in a sampler but I was happy to try it since it wasn't on the menu having been put on behind a recently kicked keg.

Pours a mostly clear light reddish hue. Nice white cap of foam receded to a thin ring.

Aroma is oaky, vanilla, and slight carameled malts coupled with bright acetic like funk and a slight hint of Brett.

Very sour flavor backed by decent malt backbone with interesting hints of toffee and caramel. Oak and vanilla also present.

Very dry finish with medium mouthfeel. Medium low carbonation.

Overall a really nice rendition of the style.
