4.28/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a brownish red. Almost zero sense of carbonation. The slightest bit of lacing stays up on the walls of the glass. No head at all. Well....the color is nice enough I guess.

Smell is very pleasant. Tart cherry juice, a little funk, a bit of that sour lacto smell, and a bit of generic dark fruit.

Taste is very in line with the smell. Finishes with a sharp sour bite but never becomes overpowering. Integrates a sense of fruit with the sourness as well as any sour I can think of off hand. Never comes close to being sweet, mind you, but there are fruit notes all over the place here. A great tasting sour.

Mouthfeel is pretty solid despite the seeming lack of carbonation. Drinks a bit more carbonated than it looks, but this is still a very "slick" beer. None the less, the mouthfeel works well with the taste profile.

Overall this is one of the better sours i've had in terms of taste profile. It could use a little more carb, but that ultimately doesn't detract too much from it. A lot of fun and easy to drink. A very unabrasive sour (though admittedly I wonder how much of that is just my palate adjusting to sours over the years).

3.89/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a snifter type maple syrup glass. No head other than a very thin layer of film. Low carbonation. Sweet flavor, less acidic. Leaves a syrupy sweet feel on the tongue giving way to sour mild acid with some soft sour bite in the back of the mouth. Not a major puckerer. Appearance is dark amber/red with good clarity. Overall a very nice sour from a NC brewery I really like. Wicked Weed Black Angel Sour just up the road is better.
