Wow, think melted cherry sour patch kids. Great balance between tartness and drinkability.
Pours deep beet red, no lacing and the smell allows you to anticipate the sourness. Your taste buds will be thrown off but in a great way. Great value, will be purchasing more.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a wine glass

A: Pours a copper-ruby color, clear but deeply colored. There is a very small, light tan head which fades quickly to a ring of foam.

S: The nose explodes with tart, earthy, sourness. Some funk develops, especially hay, as the beer warms. I detect touch of oak blends into some lively fruit aromas.

T: A similarly potent sour profile as the aroma on the attack, but more tart and less funky. A bright, tart red cherry flavor quickly comes to complement the overall tartness. Even suggestive of raspberry or blackberry given how bright and tart it is. Apple vinegar. The lactic side of the sour becomes more pronounced as I savor the sip, and frames the incredibly long finish. Lactic sourness slowly fades, leaving behind a dry, grain flavor on the back, roof of my mouth, until that, too, is gone.

M: Mouthwateringly tart. Medium low body and low carbonation.

O: An amazing beer. I don't know why I don't drink this more often. Fruity and tart in the best ways.
