Can I just write sour over and over for this review? Because this was sour—intensely sour, mouth-puckering sour, battery acid eating my taste buds off my tongue sour… like vinegar, tart cherries, strawberries before ripe sour. It was –and I never get to say this—a little too much for me. Sour!

Thanks alot peensteen for this awesome extra!

Appearance: It has a nice deep brownish amber color to it. It has practically no head, just some off-white bubbles and leaves no apparent lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of a bunch of tart cherries, vinegar, dark berries, grapes and some oak. Damn this smells great.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has loads of tart cherries, black berries, red grapes, vinegar and the oak becomes more prevalent towards the end. It has alot of acidity.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Solid
