Poured from a Corked and Caged bottle into a Prairie Teku glass. How on earth am I the first person to ever review this?

Appearance: Dark brown crimson, with a small beige head that doesn't last too long but leaves a crown around the edge of the glass. No noticeable lacing. Very pretty sour beer though.

Smell: Strong fruity vinegar, perhaps a hint of balsamic. A light vinous character. This isn't my favorite style of sour smell, but definitely a strong example of the style.

Taste: Thats actually really good. Very dry and vinous, like a fine red wine. Definitely very tart, but not overwhelming or mouth puckering. While the smell suggested vinegar, the tart flavor is more of a fruit-forward style. I get notes of sour cherry. A faint bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: On the moderate to light side of the carbonation spectrum. Not particularly thin, this one stick around a bit.

Overall: Honestly, better than I expected. I figured after smelling this that the beer would be overpoweringly sour in a "I'm drinking red-wine vinegar straight" kind of way. Not at all what I'm getting. Sour fans should seek this one out, although based on the number of reviews this one isn't easy to find.

Possibly clouded auburn colored beer. Head is a good sized pile of kahki colored tight foam which fades to a sheet and a ring. Sweet and tart cherries, light wood musk, interesting, unique floral, strawberries and cream, and a variety of other subtle aroma nuances. Taste is loaded with tart, acidic cherries, smooth woodiness, all sorts of fermented fruits, packed into a light fluid body. Carbonation is softly blended throughout. Pitted fruits and berries, all soaked in cherry juice and tangy. Mouthfeel is fantastically smooth.
