On Tap at the Flying Saucer KC. Presented in a 12oz globe.
This beer pours a caramelized sugar brown with a 2 inch cap that leaves soapy lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma comes off as pie cherries mixed with oak and vinegar. The flavor is much the same with sour pie cherries leading the way. A little raspberry with woody oak and a nice vinegary bite. Tartness hits you at the base of the jaw with grapefruit. The mouthfeel is light and mildly prickly. Overall, I think this is the best American easily accessible sour.
Serving type: on-tap

2014 bottle poured into a mini snifter.
A: Dark burgundy red. A little lacing and head, but dissipates quickly.
S: Like fruity vinegar. Acutely acidic. The sourness of this is almost overwhelming.
T: Super sour. Like biting a lime wedge sour, ok, not quite that sour. However, it is one of the most sour beers I have had. It does have a bit of a spicy fruit finish. If you like sours, you will probably like this. If you dont, you will probably hate it.
M: Tingly, a surprisingly thick feel. It is not a BA stout by any means, but for how puckering it is, its not very thin.
O: A great sour, it may only be released once a year, but had good availability despite that. Drinks great fresh.
