This beer is a dark red-brown, murky and thick, with a smallish tan head on top. Retention is fair, and the head that exists remains as a decently thick foam on top, leaving spotty lacing.
One thing that defines a good sour is complexity. What I like about the style is that it can take many different directions. While all have some fruity qualities, and, obviously, sour flavors, there are many directions to go. this one foregoes the wine-like and leans toward earthy and sort of raw, or at least what I'd consider natural. There's a cidery note, very slightly vinegar but in such a way that it's beneficial to the overall profile, with lots of tart and sour tropical as well as more domestic fruits; grape and particularly cheery come to mind along with something firm and fleshy of the lighter-colored tropical variety, something like starfruit. The wild yeast is evident, and some leafiness even sneaks in, though that may be more of a vinous element. It goes dry and woody without drying too much, integrating nicely in the overall profile.
The body is medium and carbonation is moderate, though the body itself gets a little inconsistent from time to time. Crispness remains but fades just slightly, and smoothness is in moderation but present.
