look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
