I had this on-tap at the Sanctuary with a tulip-flute glass.

Appearance- This beer has a dark ruby body with cranberry highlights. The cap is one-finger in width with an off-white, red tinge. There is lots of spot lacing on the glass.

Smell- This has some sour apple and earthy hops. There is some tart fruit sweetness, raspberry and cranberry. It is very nice.

Taste- Incredibly sour drink with the tart fruit notes being strong in the finish. This is also where the drink sweetens up from those same fruit flavors.

The earthy notes from the hops are big mid-drink. The sourness really rides hard all the way through the drink. Sour apple is kind of distinguishable in the mix of flavors.

Mouth feel- The feel is bordering on the medium and light line. There is a dry quality to it from the sour notes. It does seem a little watered down.

Overall- I really enjoyed this sour beer. The fruit profiles are spot on. The mouth feel is a little off. Otherwise, enjoy this wonderful sipper.
