Found this on tap at Mcnellies in OKC and excited to try this much talked about sour gateway.

Dark brown with streaks of red, a tan froth and some fizz. Smells of ripe, dark fruits and faint vinegar. Tastes of more dark fruits, malt, sweets tarts, vinegar and a pinch of salt. Crisp and dry all the way through.

Enough tart to let you know you've entered sour territory, but balanced and flavorful enough to be thoroughly enjoyed by the acolyte and veteran alike.
