Tart like sour apple yet sweet and crisp. Clear red amber. Nice head that faded but laced on the glass. I had this 22 oz beer after I cut the grass. Very refreshing. Tart and sour. Puckered at first but then mellowed. My wife thought it was horrid. My first sour beer. I really liked this and would buy this again.
