4.4/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 330 mL. capped bottle (no date) into a tulip glass.

A moderate pour yields a 1/2-finger off-white head that quickly disappears within seconds, leaving only a thin dusting and thin foam ring. The body is a dark chocolate mahogany with traces of coagulated blood red when held to light. A strong amount of carbonation bubbles can be seen racing each other to the surface. Every sip of this beer reveals a thin line of lacing that quickly disappears back into the body of the beer.

The nose is definitely both sweet and tart with just a touch of funk. Aromas of apple cider vinegar, black cherries, and overly ripe raspberries are just a few of the components in this complex nose.

And I thought this beer just smelled great! Each sip starts with flavors tart cherries, raspberries, and mulberries. As the beer is swallowed, a smooth apple cider vinegar flavor takes over the entire mouth and slowly mellows to a super dry finish.

Medium bodied with great carbonation, this beer is as slick as it is sour. The body is very accessible and definitely smooth, but isn't exactly a thirst-quencher. The carbonation is slightly fizzy and prickly when held in the mouth but really foams up in the swallow.

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.
