On tap at Republic. Not a style I know terribly well, but I likes me some sours, and the one FRA I had knocked my socks off.
Beautiful, deep red pour. A word to the wise though. Typically this is poured into a goblet, and the ruby red liquid in the goblet makes one look like a wine snob. Be careful where you order this, it might get you on the bidness end of an ass whupping.
Smell is vinegary, citrus, sour cherry, plenty of funk. Nice.
Taste is good, vinegar, apple, cherry. Good stu....wait a minute, what is that? That's a strange taste. Where have I had it before? With steak. Yes. It tastes like A-1! Really! Don't get me wrong, I like A-1, I just don't want to drink a goblet full of it.
Mouthfeel makes for smooth sipping.
Despite the steak sauce sensation I was able to enjoy this beer. But the off putting taste keeps it well short of being great.
Serving type: on-tap

T: sweet and sour, much sweeter than expected by the nose, strawberry, cherry, plum, currants, blackberry
M: on the thinner side, medium to high carbonation

Pours a dark ruby color with a finger of off-white head. Head lingers for a bit, then turns into a thin layer around the edges of the glass and in the middle.
Smells wonderfully refreshing on this warm NC day. Smells of raisins, plumb, tarty, a bit of must, farty farm smells, when I close my eyes and smell this, it takes me to an open meadow on a warm spring day with the sun setting.
Taste is sour up front with a very fruity finish. Very dry. Notes of strawberries, cherries, plumb, pineapple, currant, cranberries. As I sip this on my front porch, it hits the right spots. Very refreshing.
Mouth feel is light. Very carbonated. Refreshing, but one of those drinks you want to sip and enjoy, so maybe not very easily drinkable.
Overall I really enjoyed this.
