Pours somewhat brownish red in appearance, to be honest not entirely pleasing to the eye.

Strong tart cherry and wine barrel tannic notes, oak, and musty funk.

Bretty, musty, funky, oaky, vinous, cherry.

Medium-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, tart.

Overall, a nice and refreshingly tart sour brew that goes down easy. My only knocks are the appearance does not do this beer justice and the abv is a little high to enjoy the complexity of this brew.
