Ruddy red and brown appearance, not quite still life pour, but it really wasn't the prettiest beer. 1/7" head is shy and quickly disappears. You get those wood and mild sour notes in the aroma, didn't pick up anything acetic here.

Taste was seemingly a bigger blend of fresh beer instead of tart/sour blended with it. Very mild. Woody, hops aged, some acetic acid, highly carbonated, thin brown malts.

Its a neat little foray into the past, but ultimately I'd rather have something like New Glarus's old world porter or whatnot if I want to see how beer was blended fresh with the infected stuff from yesteryear.
