This beer pours a stunning dark cherry that fades to a murky brown around the edges. The thin, frothy head stuck around for a while leaving some nice lace behind.

Smells of sour cherry and an earthy, wet oak. There’s also a powdery dryness behind these sour elements.

There’s not as much to the flavor as I had anticipated. It starts light and tingly with a sour fruity snap, but then gets washed out by a watery cherry and melon. The sourness reemerges in the finish further back on my tongue but brings with it metallic sting. There are also lingering traces of celery.

The mouth feel is very light and clean with a light but prominent carbonation the deposit’s the sour elements.

I’m still on the fence with this one. It’s a simple sour beer, but then there’s that metallic finish. It’s not my favorite, but I didn‘t have any trouble finishing it.

Had on tap at Local 44 in Philly. Poured a purple brown into a tulip with a thick cream colored head. Smell was bitter fruity of raisins and bread. Taste was pungent and fruity similar to a brandy or whiskey. Mellow Belgian hops in the finish. Complex beer definitely worth trying but nowhere near as interesting or tasty as some similar beers.
