Pours like a soda pop with a quickly dissipating bubbly froth.
What is this?A dark brown clear liquid no head at all, beer?
The aroma is perplexing, I would describe it as the insides of a discarded yeasty/moldy jar of raspberry jam.
Taste is what it's about, YEE GADS thats sour, Like the best lemonaid you ever had,sour cherries, unripe apricots, strong carbonation hammers down the sour taste-buds until endorphins take over and calm everything down again, must have another taste, then another
Addicting, mesmerizing flavor.
Ye Gads! BRAVO!

A dark ruby colored beer with a nice dense ivory colored head on top. Rich and fruity up front on the nose. The currants come through nicely here. First sips gives a great introduction to this beers wild side. Not immensely sour, but a nice tartness with a bit of a vinegary note and sour cherry. Nicely carbonated and a fairly smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
