Poured on tap into smaller wine glass. Pours grapefruit red, no head. sour cherry, wheat, raspberry and maybe a little watermelon on the nose. very delectable. taste is quite tart, reminds me of the black raspberry sour warhead candy. mouth feel is awesome. the initial carb goes excellent with the tartness, it almost excels the experience. overall, i am comfortable saying this is a great beer. very refreshing and an awesome cap to the session.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to eyebereej for sending this particular bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter.
A: Deep hazy red with lots of visible carbonation and a two-finger foamy off-white head.
S: Tart, acetic, and fruity - sour cherries and raspberries - with moderate funk undertones.
T: Significant tartness up front. I get both acetic and lactic in near-equal balance. Sour raspberries, some funk, and a bit of barnyard. Finishes fairly dry with the lingering sourness.
M: Medium to a bit light-bodied. Good carbonation sensation. It seems a little hot for the style, but the ABV is higher than many similar beers - and it doesn't affect drinkability.
O: This was very good. I felt like it wasn't quite as complex as the best fruited sours, and the increased alcohol heat seemed a little out of place. But still quite enjoyable.
