Had on-tap at Slow's bbq in Detroit. Served in a pint glass?

It is a very dark red with a very thin ring of off-white bubbles on top. The smell is sour! Big acetic notes. I have no idea if this beer spent anytime in wood but if it did, it wasn't very evident. Acetic more so than lactic sour. Dark malts, Cherries, and a little bit of vinegar. The mouthfeel was heavy for the style and the carbonation was very low.

Overall, not a great beer but not bad. It's great to see more sours out there, especially on tap in a restaurant.

Draft @ Slows. This one is freakin delicous.

It is a clearish dark red with a foamy short-lived head.

Aroma is funky and sour, lots of sour fruits like cherries and lemons.

The flavor is great, a good dose of acidic vinegar to go with a puckering cherry lemon combo. Nice sourness. Sweet but not too sweet.

It has a perfect mouthfeel and it is extremely drinkable.

A solid one.
