This beer is very difficult for me to rate and should probably be taken with a "grain of salt". It hits all of the marks of the style (e.g. look, funky/fruity smell, funky/tart flavor, etc.) and is probably an extremely solid option for those who love sours. I have enjoyed sours, but I much prefer that the sourness itself be on the milder end of the spectrum. This beer was just a bit too much for me to handle in terms of tartness.

If you like your sours super sour (while also complex), then this is your beer. Strong cherry, oak, and extreme vinous flavor and aroma upfront, followed by an absolute onslaught from the tart, vinegar and overall acidity on the back.

Slowly sip and get ready to have your taste buds assaulted.

Wow, this is an exceptional sour beer. Very complex, if you see it and enjoy sours its a must by.
