I actually don't usually like sours, but this one was pretty good. More drinkable than I expected it to be and didn't completely destroy the palate. Malt brings some sweetness and the sour taste that is there is more of a citruc sour and not a vinegar one that I expected.

Pours out a deep brown with red hues. Smells of caramel malts with a very subdued barrel/sour nose. Flavor has a sour twang, but not a very strong vinegar/barrel character as one would expect from this style. A bit one note. Malt tastes of general "sweet." Mouthfeel is light and prickly. This isn't bad, but really lacking in many ways.
