look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a corked and caged bottle into a snifter
A- pours a dark murky brown, red tints appear when held to light, very little head but what is there is popping with carbonation bubbles, spotty to little lacing
S- woah, you get hit with a lot of oud bruin type funk right off the bat, vinegar, slightly fruity, my mouth is watering, would have liked to have gotten more cherry in the nose
T- wow, tart tart tart, funk is strongly apparent, mouth puckering, vinegar, tart cherry, one of the most sour beers ive ever tasted and i love jolly pumpkin beers
M- medium body, pretty high carbonation, dry wine-like finish
O- I like this beer a lot, it is not the best of the style, that being said it is still delicious and its one of the most sour beers ive ever had, the big thing that would keep me from buying this again is the price, way too high for a 12.7oz bottle, other than that it was a pleasure to drink
