A Very dark reddish, min head, great lacing.
S some pretty wild fruity, mushroom, oaky smokey goodness
T very sweet tropical citrus fruit upfront but mellows to a more carmelly grapefruit end
M very delicious and easily drinkable, great even carbonation and a fruity caramel aftertaste
O very enjoyable and complex. Flavors swirl and emerge and play around on tongue and cheeks. Had on tap in a squat tulip glass at OSDH in a presidents day special for FDR.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at The Stein & Vine, served into a tulip glass.

A: Dark brown with hints of red, and one finger's worth of white head on top. Low visible carbonation.

S: Tart, barnyard funky, and a bit fruity - sweet & sour overall.

T: Follows the nose - tart, and more fruity than the smell suggests (cherry, lime, strawberry?). Dry, almost woody finish. Pretty tasty.

M: Medium body, middle-of-the-road carbonation. The alcohol is noticeable but doesn't detract.

O: I've never had this one tap before. It's quite tasty, and an easy drink...but it doesn't blow me away - doesn't rise to the complexity of other sours. Still, I will enjoy more in the future.
