look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

A: Brownish red with an off white creamy head that lasts. Some haze to it. Hardly any lacing.

S: Tons of tart cherries, a bit of sweet apples and some funk.

T: Tart and sour cherries up front with some nice funk. Can really pick up tannins and the pinot. Lots of oak on the backend. Finish is semi sour and a bit dry, yet clean.

M: On the heavy side of light. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Fine carbonation.

O: Excellent sour. The time spent in the pinot noir is an awesome layer of flavor. Decent drinkability.
