Bottle dated nov. 18, 2010
Poured into a chalice

Pours a deep cherry red with two fingers of pink head. Head recedes quickly and settles with a small crown with slight lacing.

Smell is cherries and sour funk. The funk smell is well balanced with the sweet cherry smell, not as overwhelming as I thought it would be.

The taste is sour cherry, much like sour patch kids. The cherry flavor is excellent, not too sweet and not too tart. The sour is not too overwhelming, very balanced. This is only my third or fourth sour, and if they all taste like this, I'm hooked.

The mouthfeel is typical of the style, high carbonation and light body. Drinks more like champagne or carbonated fruit juice. Very refreshing.

Overall, I am really enjoying this beer. It is sour and a little funky, but it tastes great. I will definitely seek this out again.
