5/5  rDev +16.6%

Draught pour into mini tulip glass.

Appearance: Clarity is Hazy, color is Brownish/Mahogany
Aroma: Intensely sour, with some sweetness. Notes of green apple lemon-lime and herbal, slight orange citrus and tart & overripe cherry.
Taste: Sweet on entry, green apple skin, lemon-lime, then a burst of cohesive flavors and a sour pucker towards the end. Finish is tart with green apple and cinnamon.
Mouthfeel: Fizzy, foam, dry feel that leaves you salivating and anxious for the next sip.
Overall: A wonderful, drinkable, exciting beer that makes you crave each sip. It is sour but a slight sweetness balances the palette.

Enjoyed on tap at The Independent in Tampa, FL.

Deep ruby red with dark orange trim, topped by a finger of white foam; nice lacing and and head duration, a very good-looking beer all around.

Good aromas, nicely sour with some maraschino cherry sweetness, but more raspberry.

The taste is excellent, really sour, almost puckeringly so, but with some sweet berry and cherry as well. Raspberry and blackberry are evident, with cherry in the finish. It reminds me of a delicious, sour version of Ommegang's Three Philosophers, no light comparison given my deep fondness for 3P.

The mouthfeel is just about ideal--very smooth, but with a nice creaminess, a velvety finish that brings a hint of tart in the end.

This really impressed me, so much so that ordering a second quickly on the heels of the first was in order. Fabulous beer, a very pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.
