Appearance - 3.75/5
A semi-translucent darker golden orange. A small amount of white head. Slightly less than typical carbonation is visible rising up the beer,

Smell - 4.25/5
Delicious tart cherries, apples, maybe some lemon as well. Overall a great sour funkiness.

Taste - 4.25/5
Very sour but delicious. Cherries, apples, lemons, and other slightly boozy fruit flavors are present and tart.

Mouthfeel - 4.75/5
Incredibly smooth and creamy feel. Not overcarbonated like some sours, so you get to experience the fullness of the sour flavors, without it being overpowered by the carbonation. The smoothness and creaminess are really incredible, considering this is a very sour beer.

Overall - 4.25/5
Overall, this was a very good sour beer, but not incredible. I'm not sure it was worth the $20 I paid for it. If it was $15, maybe.
