Sampled in a goblet from a 375ml bottle purchased while on business in the bay area.

A - Reddish brown and hazy with a limited head. Lots of bubbles but no accumulation.

S - Lots of sour cherries.

T - A very sour and tart start with a vinous finish. Great complexity. The sourness and the wine notes play off and compliment each other. The 10% alcohol is barely noticeable.

M - A mouthpuckering bite and a carbonation that delivers and disperses the flavors nicely.

D - Complex and addicting. I love this beer.
