Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. Body is a dark ruby red, with a half finger head. Aromas consist of berries and oak barrels. Flavors are the same. The beer is less sour than I thought it would be, carbonation is high, and it's kind of dry.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark ruby looking almost identical to a port wine with thin white head that quickly fades. Aroma is very complex. Smells vinous with the Cabernet definitely prominent. Cherry, prune, figs,, plums, brown sugar. Taste is very similar to smell. Moderate to heavy sweetness followed by a moderate sour flavor. I'm not a big sour fan but this is very good. Medium bodied with sticky and clingy mouthfeel. Flavors of cherry, prune, Cabernet. From a guy who is not a big sour fan even I'll admit this is a very complex and tasty beer.
