4/5  rDev -2.4%

Tart, with sour apple and cherry flavors emerging after initial taste. The sort of sourness you feel in your jaw. Initial flavor and smell is almost vinegar in its sharpness and astringency.

Best by date of 6-7-2017

Appearance - dark burgundy color with no head

Smell - grapes, cherries, vinegar, malt

Taste - grape, cherry, malt, hint of vinegar, hint of oak

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, low level of carbonation, sour/sweet/tart/funky upfront, each sip seems to change flavors.

Overall - very nice beer here. Not for every beer drinker, but I like the way the flavors change with every sip

Price point - $5.49/11.2 oz bottle
