pours dark red. getting sourness on the nose, it reminds me of tomato juice or ketchup, and maybe some sweeter overtones as it warms. slightly offensive. the flavor is very well done. its tartness is muffled, pretty friendly. sour apple, definitely strawberry or raspberry notes. do not over chill this, the best came out as it warmed a bit

A - very clear dark amber hue with a small tan/white head that persists only as a ring around the glass

S - funk, musty dark fruit, phenolic, intriguing but not the best I've smelled

T - sweet fruityness quickly turning to extreme tartness and then transitioning to a smooth lingering apple and cherry sweetness, excellent!

M - very dry, astringent, lightly effervescent, pleasing complement to the taste

O - well balanced, subtle complexities under a huge tart punch with exciting flavor changes from start to finish

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Acquired in a trade as a generous extra, thanks!

A- Pours a copper red hazy body with a modest head that doesn't stick around very long. No lacing.

S- Super funky, leather, lactic acid, sour citrus, some caramel and toffee.

T- Big punch of sour lactic, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar. The finish is delicious with roasty, malty, nutty notes. Very nice.

M- Medium-light body, super crisp and refreshing, easy drinker.

I really liked this beer. Wish it was available in bombers, 12 oz just isn't enough!
