Poured into a snifter

A: Brown, opaque. Not much of a head that dissipated quickly. Light lacing.

S: Sour apples pop up strongly. Some citrus.

T: A light sourness combined with a cola-like taste. Easy to drink.

M: Light to medium with light carbonation.

O: An excellent sour. Smooth, sippable. Great to share with friends.
