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

A- Dark brown in color with amber hues. The head is pale white in color and rapidly dissipates. Spotty lace lays over the body.

S- Deep sour aromas, brown malt and earthiness. Cherry aroma or something of the orchard variety.

T- Sour cherries, malty flavors that border on bready, and a lingering nutty aftertaste. There's crisp apple as well.

M- sour, light, mostly smooth and slightly acidic.

This is damn tasty. The flavor sets it apart from the rest of the pack.
