A ruby brown color. No light through it, kind of murky. Head drops to a film quickly. A definite tart sour presence on the nose. Grape, Apple. Subtle alcohol. Almost a vanilla from the bourbon, but just a hint. Taste, kind of a sweet tart candy quality to it. Similar fruity presence as the nose. The mouthfeel, well carbonated. Refreshes as you drink. Overall, this is no enamel stripping sour. Pick this up again NYD. (Next time they release it.)
