On tap into the brewery's really cool stemware. Beautiful deep dark red with a thin crown of eggshell head that slowly subsides over a couple minutes...no lacing. Lots of vinegar on the nose, a hint of tart pie cherry underneath the vinegar...ok, but nothing too great. Taste is very cherry and sweeter than expected, but not in a bad way, with a nice very modest sour edge that grows on me and develops as I sip.

Far too much vinegar in the taste, and not in a good way.
