Full disclosure* I am continuing to develop a taste and affinity to sours so I'm not looking for pucker face sours.

Had 8oz sample draft pour @ jk.. The nose on this thing of beauty was like a strawberry patch! Look was darker than I expected, even has some strawberry seeds swirling in glass. Taste; mild strawberry with sour finishing with slight sweetness. Feel; light to medium feel but sweet & sour with together to create crisp refreshing feel.

Dry and tart but not the most sour. A tad too sweet from the overwhelming jammy strawberry flavor, but definitely goes down smoothly. Close to perfect.

I greatly enjoyed this, but I'm a strawberry fiend. The aroma was pure strawberry, like strawberry icing. Flavor was all strawberry, not overwhelmingly sweet, light carbonation, no lactic hangover for me. Color took the prize here. Deep, red, never fading. Excellent brew
