A - Muddy brown with ruby glow.

S - Sharp acidity.

T - Much fruitier than Red Poppy. It's much more balanced as a result with raspberries and a dry finish. Delicious.

M - Bang on.

O - Just a great beer. Really flavourful and well-rounded. I'd like a little more wood character to take it to the next level.

Serving Type- On tap poured into a tulip glass

Appearance- Pours deep ruby red with hints of brown, very little head

Smell- Apple cider vinegar, sour black cherries, acidity, sweet dark fruits

Taste- This is where this beer shines in my opinion, Tart, earthy, sour apple skins, dark cherries, some dark oak, tannin's, vinegar just an awesome sour and very classic for this style

Mouthfeel- High carbonation, dry and light body

Overall- One of the best sours I have ever had very solid if you have never had this beer its a must have...CHEERS
