look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a beautiful reddish orange. Nicely carbonated, almost no head or lacing.

S: Has an acidic sour aroma, some hay and earthy tones.

T: This is how I like my sours, this one gives you a bit of a pucker, but it is not so sour that it hurts. Entirely drinkable. Of course the acetic sour flavor stands out, but there is much more to this brew than just that. There are apple, pear, and berry flavors. There is even a touch of sweetness mixed in. A taste of malt.

M: Clean, dry, refreshing, pleasantly carbonated.

O: A very nice example of the style. Some sours are sippers, this one is a drinker.

Serving type: bottle
