look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Milky ruby-brown, no head and no lace. Clean. Bottle art is nicely dorkish/anti-sleek. No reportable carbonation.

S: Slight pucker, cherry, trace vinegar in palatable amounts for my American palate (those who enjoy vinegar probably want more.)

T: Great puckering ability, bright cherry, a bit of grain and yeast. Dry.

M: Fluid, no syrup or saccharine qualities that are common in sours. No gritty teeth feeling. Weak but appropriate carbonation.

O: An honest-to-goodness sour beer. Not simple, but purposeful; doesn't spend time on complexity when all you want is sourness and red fruit. I'll be searching for it again.

On tap. Lovely flanders red ... great balance of fruit and tart. The sourness is pretty mild ... tart is a better term than sour for this beer. Just perfect for my tastes.
