look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle to tulip.

A: Pours a black cherry color with a very small head that dissipates quickly.

S: Strong vinegar smell up front, followed by a sour cherry finish.

T: Starts with huge sour cherry, much more than the smell leads on. Not really any vinegar in the taste and finishes fairly sweet.

M: light bodied with huge carbonation that fizzes in the mouth, and finishes slightly dry.

O: My first sour and I like it a lot, little bit different but very good.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance: very light white head which quickly disappears; dark amber/reddish, brown - almost cola like.

smell: very nice balance of sour and sweetish notes; cherry, grape and a little brandy/rum notes, all in all very fresh and inviting .

taste: the sour, tart notes increased compared to smell, still reminds me of berries with some citrus notes, but still some sweetness to be found with some spice. all this gives the beer a nice fresh, light kick.

mouthfeel: nice to sip, medium body, good balanced fizzy carbonation with fruity taste which leads to a nice finish. sip leaves medium sour notes to play with long after.

overall: excellent sour ale with strong fruity feel, fresh and enjoyable to drink.
