62212 batch...not too old at all

A - this one pours a nice red burgundy with some nice fuzzy loving at the bottom; the head is rimmed with solid lacing; plenty of funky chunks settled at the bottom

S - I get the cherry right away, with some white grapes, musty oak, and subtle Pinot hints

T - the cherry musty tart thing is what this beer is all about; the grape notes persist as well; there are some lemon hints with some tangy notes...like a liquid version of a sweet and sour

M - the mouth on this one really shines...it's near flawless in the feel; carbonation is perfect, and at 7%, this'll pack a punch while still hitting light and easy; awesome on the mouth

O - I'm still not a huge sour guy, but this beer is top notch; the flavors are light, refreshing, and crisp...while still maintaining complexity. Love the cherries, oak, must, lemon tart elements...awesome beer and at the top in its style!
