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

A: Hazy golden color, slightly translucent
S: Lots of strawberries upfront, sweet maltiness aroma mixed with alcohol in the background
T: Sweet strawberries upfront, vinegar and lactic sourness in the foreground. Also a nice oak flavor comes through, very clean on the palate. Finishes with a lemon-zest/ alcohol type burn on the tongue.
M: Slightly thin, low carbonation, makes your lips pucker and tongue salivate
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer, it was a very nice example of a strawberry sour. Very clean tasting, nice and acidic, and the strawberry flavors were still very pronounced. Would highly recommend to any sour lover, 4.5/5

Serving type: on-tap
