(Served in a chalice)

A- This beer pours a glowing brown body with a garnet base and a boiling beige head that fades to a thin ring over time and lots of tiny strands of microbubbles supporting it.

S- The sharp brightness of vinegar with notes of tart cherries to follow have a slight wet wood hint to them as the beer opens up.

T- The sharp tartness of young balsamic vinegar has an acrid cherry note in the finish and a sweetness that lingers and grows stronger as the beer opens. It coats the throat after each sip.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with no alcohol heat and no real astringency. The texture does get thicker in the finish as the beer warms.

O- The big sour is followed by a big sweetness in the finish with not a lot of depth or character. The sweetness just gets to big and coats the throat. I needed a water chaser after this one.

Served In: Flute Glass
