look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Not much head to this beer and it poured a murky red brown color. Great lacing as you drank the beer.

Smell - lots and lots of funkiness going on along with a tartness I will attribute to the cherries.

Taste - Early tangy tartness before an after taste of sour. Subtle sour and not as strong as some other Crooked Stave beers.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth compared to some big sours out there

Overall - another great example from Crooked Stave. My second favorite from the Origins series.
