It's actually a pretty modest looking brown ale, but the lacing is a perfect off-white around the glass. (A taller 10z goblet)

The wine cask element overwhelms, but it's very pleasant.

Again, the wine cask element overwhelms, but it's a very pleasant sour ale. Tart cherry is the key element.

Medium to light body, ample carbonation with a somewhat dry finish.

It's as good as advertised.

Look: Pours a nice clear reddish color without too much head

Smell: Tart cherries and hints of dry red wine

Taste: A complex brew of nice sourness, tart cherries, subtle dry red wine, hints of oak

Feel: Medium body and carbonation

Overall: This is a an excellent brew. Would love it if this was easier to get, though that might not be good for my wallet.
