4.25/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle, bottled February 11, 2011, to a tulip glass.

A - The beer pours a bit hazy amber color with a nice 1 finger slightly off-white head with decent retention and lacing. The foam slips to a silky film.

S - A complex aroma consisting of some fruity character: raspberries, cherry. A fair amount of malt sweetness as well as vanilla.

T - Very nice flavor. The beer starts with the malt character, cherry tart, and vanilla flavors. The sour nature of the yeast soon follow and blend nicely with the nice mild bitterness. The beer finishes crisp and dry. Very good. No way I could tell it was as strong as it is.

M - Suprisingly thick and smooth and yet crisp at the same time. Good carbonation.

O - I really enjoyed this beer. A lot of the sour beers are too much and perhaps the mild nature of this beer appealed to me for that reason. I really enjoyed it.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
