4.5/5 rDev +4.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A- Poured from a 750ml. Deep vibrant red. Got me excited as soon as it was poured. Head was beautiful lacy white, that stayed up quite awhile. Resembled a champagne to me.
S- Sour right from the start, with a hint of sweetness. Quite surprising at first. Full with notes of cherries and balsamic vinegar, really just any vinegar. full of just tart citric notes. Really interesting.
T- Threw me off at first and wasn't sure I liked it. Straight tart and sweet cherries. Took another sip, and another, only to find my self now enjoying this beer. The sour, tart, taste of aged cherries had a great blend of tart and sweet. Not to much of either. Very refreshing.
M- This might be my favorite part of the beer. Hitting the mouth you can feel tart effervescent bubbles rush in your mouth leaving a very pleasant finish. Very crisp and refreshing. Had many similarities to a good champagne not in terms of taste so much but mouthful
O- Im proud to say that after one bottle I was hooked. The semi sweet tartness, with a crisp mouthful and finish left me wanting more. This is now at the top of one of my favorite beers if not leading the list. Its hard it like picking your favorite movie, but know one has seen them all.
Anyways all around i give this beer 5 stars. Very good beer and everyone should try it once, if not twice.

1 pt 9.6 fl oz bottle from FMcDs poured into a tulip.
A - Dark brown with faint amber highlights. Two finger head that moves quickly to a thin lace. Great lace retention through the drink.
S - Cider, vinegar, plums and cherries.
T - Follows the nose, with the addition of some pear and cola. Sour level is moderate.
M - Carbonation is on the moderate/low side, with some mid swig to the finish sharpness to finish semi dry.
O - A pleasant sour. Highly drinkable and recommended. Well made.
