Balsamic vinegar, cherry, fairly sweet and tart, slightly soy sauce. Finish of tartness and rich fruit lasts longer than expected, and a musty taste is eventually left behind. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Quite nice if you like vinegar, fairly complex.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Best by 14/06/2014

A: Pours a clear dark rube with a one finger slightly tan head. Lots of visible carbonation in the body. Head sticks around as a thin covering for quite a while. Leaves some good lacing on the glass.

S: Hits your nose with a sweet, fruity, sour blend of malts and yeast. Vinegar and oakiness permeates as it warms. Cherry comes through as well as dark fruity malts.

T: This is a tart and sour beer with a great sweetness and fruit. Strong cherry and some real good oak. On the sweeter side of the spectrum.

M: Very crisp, lots of carbonation combined with a fairly thick mouthfeel with a bit of a syrup feel. Dry feel, alcohol is lost in the flavor.

Overall this is a phenomenal beer, very easy to drink and an amazing flavor. Would love to drink this all the time.
