Appears a hazy dark russet toned rusty crimson with a small, bubbly white cap that quickly fades into a tiny collar. Little speckles of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of cherries, vanilla, rhubarb, cream, and fruity hard candies.
Taste is of the aromas with a wonderful flavor of cherry pie and a small acidic addition found in the swallow.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, tart, mild CO2, puckering but balanced and addictive.

A - Poured a cloudy, burgundy color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace.

S - It smelled of cherry and sour green apples.

T - Great sour flavor with black cherry and green apple flavors. There was a touch of caramel and not much else.

M - It was crisp with a puckering sharpness. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a very good sour ale. I really enjoyed this ale.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

a: murky brown with some reddish hues. three fingers of tan head slowly fall to a thin creamy cap. moderate lacing is left behind.

s: cherries and alochol.

t: bursting with more cherry flavor than you can wag your tongue at. a little acidic sourness but mostly tart cherries. alochol was also very present on the tongue.

m: carbonation was on the mark. the feel of the body seems to be right for the style. a little sticky. very warming from the alochol.

o: my only knock on this beer is the almost too harsh of a burn from the alochol, other than that I like it.
