Clear, plumb colored. Off-white head
The sour aroma fills the room. Sharp, pungent, and wine-like.
Fine and dandy like sour candy. Some might say the flavor is similar to wine. I would say it's better. The backbone obviously comes from barley malt. Not fruit. But, fruity flavors are upfront. And sourness after. I could go on and on. Really complex flavor.
It's hard to judge the viscosity, since this beer is doing so much to your mouth. the dry tartness hits the tongue immediately and lingers inside the mouth. Meanwhile, you still have sour to lick from your lips as you try not to pucker.
Some folks may not enjoy a beer like this. For me, I consider it a treat. Your life is not too bad if you're enjoying a beer like this.
