A: Copper crystal ale with almost no carbonation, 2 fingers of light beige head which fade fast leaving snowflake like lacing.


S: Vinegar, fermented red fruits, red wine vinegar, wine, funk, woody oaken barrels.


T: Sour immediately followed by strong oaken woody depth. No sweetness, but its not harsh like some sours. There’s a strong dull bitter finish from the hops.


M: Medium light body, little carbonation, dry sour balanced finish.


O: Love it. Got it in Saginaw, MI, drank in New Hamburg, ON, Aug 21st, 2014. Really good sour. Its not overwhelming like Love Child No. 4, and I could keep coming back to it.
