My first Sour review!

A - Poured out nicely, this beer has a good 1.5 finger head. Typical color I'd expect of a beer, nothing insane, but nothing tame either.

Smell - This... smells like a sour beer. Has a light, almost vinegar sensation on the nostrils, but you can tell it's full of cherry-like character.

Taste - Immediately, my taste buds are bombarded by a wall of sourness, but as it settles on my tongue, hints of cherry and dark cedar settle in, making it quite an inviting sour that you want to sip on frequently, but one that you want to enjoy for as long as you can.

Mouthfeel - It's quite light and bubbly, the after taste clings to your tongue in a great way, I like that I can take a little sip and really get what this beer is about and cherish it over the course of an hour or so, rather than having to take a nice gulp to get a great flavor profile.

Overall - I'm just starting to tread into sour territory. Before this I've had Supplication, and a few Petrus sours. This is way up there, if you are familiar with sour beers or if you are new to sour beers, I would recommend this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep, slightly opaque red with an off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Subtle carbonation. Aromatics are of sour cherry, discernible vinegar and faint wood. Sour cherry and light vinegar are present on the pallet. Slight oakiness and berries present. Complex, not too tart. Excellent starter beer if you're new to sours.
