look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance was a dark ruby color that when you put you fingers behind the glass you could make out the shadow of your fingers. It also had a real good head to it

It was not to sour. It is a good beer to get people to try sour ales on since it is not overwhelming. You get the tartness feeling but it goes away quickly and is not to powerful.

Overall I liked this beer. I and starting to enjoy cask and sour beers more and more and this was a good one. It was easy drinking and would recommend to anyone who is looking to break into the world of sours.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured in a snifter glass the foam created a one finger head, fine bubbles, tan in color. The beer is a dark brown, redish color that has great clarity.

S: Tart cherry aroma with vinegar and some woody undertones. No hop aroma. A slight bread crust note.

T: The vinegar flavor doesn't transfer to the flavor (good thing), Woody flavor, tart cherry pie filling, raspberry notes. bready and biscuit notes. balance is on the sweeter side, but its not cloying just nice.

M: A dry finish with moderate carbonation. The tartness is medium and the tannins from the wood add a slight astringency.

O: A very drinkable sour, not super sour or harshness. I would recommend this as an entry level sour. easily accessible and some nice woody flavors to go with the tartness.
