375ml corked bottle. Batch 010 Poured into an oversized tulip.

A - Light tan head has an orange tint, tight bubbles. Good clarity from a gentle pour. Amber in color. Minimal lacing left on the glass.

S - Little bit of brett character in the glass that had more sediment. Candied valentines day hearts. Tartness is hard to identify but it's present in the background.

T - Puckering sourness is all over this beer. The fruitiness seems like unrippened cherry/raspberry with a little bit of bitterness to it. The finish is cleaner from a pour that has less sediment in the glass. Little acetobacter/cider vinegar flavor. Small amount of sweetness dries up quickly.

M - Medium to medium-light body, tingly medium carbonation, pretty dry feel.

O - Enjoyed the complexity in the aroma, many things going on here. Stark contrast to the taste portion. Flavor-wise this beer shows a lot of harder to find dimensions/flavors. Feel was what I would look for to compliment.
