Pours a murky red-tinted brown. The thin tan head quickly disappears completely and leaves very faint spots of lace.

The smell is of sour cherry and faint vinegar tartness.

The taste is of unripe cherries, white grape skins and faint molasses sweetness.

The texture is medium bodied and effervescent with high carbonation.

A delicious sour cherry beer that is bubbly and refreshing.
