look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Dark murky brown with a touch of red, just a thin bubbly head with no retention, no lace.

S - Vinegary, musty and sour. Tart berries, grass and some boozy heat.

T - Sour fruit, particularly raspberries and tart apples. Some coffee bitterness breaks through at the back end.

M - Thin body, moderately carbonated, sour finish.

O - This is a complex and unusual beer. A nice blend of sour and bitter, which I would like to have seen balanced with some more sweetness but it is certainly worth a try for true beer advocates.
