look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Killer dark ruby read. Thin head. Light bubbles.

S: Sour apple, grape. Wine like notes with some gentle tannins. Smells like liquid candy.

T: Very smooth sour fruitiness. Goes down smooth with notes of grape. A slight bitterness is more of a compliment than a nuisance.

M: Actually sits pretty intensely. The bubbles really compound the sourness and it's hard to let this one linger. Goes down smooth though.

A killer beer. I tend to like the more fruity beers so this was a winner for me. Great balance, great flavors. Definitely check this one out.

4.38/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours like a Cabernet with a head; ruby red with russet tones; the head leaves a nice pattern of squiggly lace

Smell: Tart cherry with lemon undertones; very yoghurty

Taste: Fruity, up front, with cherry, apple and stone fruit flavors; the tartness builds quickly, adding a lactic sourness the reigns through the finish; oaky tones join the lactic sourness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation; appropriately puckery

Overall: A lovely example of the style; has all of the right elements

had this at blue palms brewhouse on tap
it was served in 10 oz glass which is satisfactory

smell was very nice mellow
pours a nice mahogany reddish color with little head
taste is puckering sour with a smooth tone not heavy alcholol
could drink most of the night as it is great beer to drink
overall i would rate this a top level sour and very pleasant beer to drink
