750 ml bottle poured into Southern Tier Pumking Tulip.

A: Somewhat "dirty" looking browish/ruby red with a pillowy 2 finger head from a moderately vigorous pour. Head recedes but leaves a nice frothy ring around the glass that sticks around.

S: Smells tart and slightly sweet. Definitely picking up the cherries in the nose, as well as some apple and vinegar aromas. It is very subtle, but I'm picking up light hints of bourbon as well.

T: Sweet up front with a great cherry presence. The initial cherry sweetness gives way to a tart, dry finish. Slight vinegar. This one leans more to the tart and acidic side as opposed to the funky side, although some minor funk is present. Again, picking up some slight bourbon character in the form of toffee/caramel mid swallow.

M: Moderate carbonation. Given the sweetness and overall "size" of this beer, it is unsurprising that it feels a bit thicker in the mouth than some other sours.

O: Great sour. Certainly among the better I've had the pleasure of enjoying. There are some interesting complexities to it that aren't found in many other wilds.
