Poured from bomber into a tulip glass.

A- dark reddish brown with little head that dissipates very quickly. Doesn't look bad, doesn't look amazing.

S- I'm getting tons of apricot and similar fruits. Slight raspberry scent. But I mainly get a sour fuck that makes me pucker my cheeks before I even take a drink.

T- follows the nose very well. Apricots, peach, raspberry. Also getting some woody taste. There is also a dryness in there that sits after the sour makes its first hit. The sourness is pretty good in this beer the funk in it stays with you.

M- super sour. Probably the most sour beer I've had. Intmstantly makes you pucker. The more you drink it the easier it gets though. Medium body as well.

O- a very delicious sour, not my sour but a delicious one. Very glad I got to try this beer.

Serving Type: 22 oz bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass (2014 release)

Appearance: Rich, frothy, off-white head of both fine and large bubbles. Dissipates to good, ornate lacing. Clear, deep garnet brown.

Smell: Red wine vinegar, dark fruit, slight yeast and toasted grains. Slightly musty and funky

Taste: Dominantly tart: sour apple, red currant, and vinegar. Some toffee rounds out the body with slight oak tannin in finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with nice, prickly carbonation.

Overall: Good tart flavors with some oak character emerging as it warms. Refreshing and smooth, not too complex.
