look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16oz can into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Pours a murky amber with a pretty large one finger bubbly off-white head. Smell is sour cherry with that brett brux making the aroma that of a kriek. taste is musty cherry, leather, tobacco, and a little earthy grassyness. Feel is minimal tartness, medium-high carb, smooth, crisp and refreshing.

Overall this is not a sour ale by any means. There brett is there to really dry it out and bring that funky cherry to play. Still a very nice beer to sip on.
