look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear, tawny-amber color with a bubbly eggshell colored head. Average retention and spotty lace.

Smells of lemonheads and cherry clan like most of RR sours but this is heavier on the cherry side. A touch or tart Chardonnay as well.

Taste is much different than the other RR sours and opposes the nose. Quite the variation of flavor ranging from Chardonnay and wet horse blanket to mildly tart cherries and finishing with a dry wheat like character.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Pretty dry yet fairly tacky.

Overall this is far better than I thought it'd be. Not bad.
