This beer has an interesting mix of red and brown that becomes more of an orange and gold tone at the bottom of the glass. A beautiful light tan head sits on top of the beer that does not fade away. Sweet malt, bready grain, dry oak, and a mild fruity tartness on the nose. A little diacetyl comes out in the aroma as well creating a buttered popcorn note. Tart and fruity on the taste upfront with flavors of black cherry and red wine grapes. This is followed by some earthiness and mild funk, strong oak, sweet caramel, and a little vanilla. The finish brings in some more tartness but this time it has more of a yogurt quality.
Both unique and delicious, even the diacetyl works somehow.
