Bottle to tulip.

A: Murkey greenish-purple (strange I know). The colors are very stratified in a tulip - gets darker at the bottom of the glass. Highly viscous resembling apple cider.

S: Tart. Notes of sour fruit, dust, sour-yeast, oak, and vinegar. Moderate amount of funk.

T: Tart. Notes of sour red grapes, red wine, apples, and persimmon. Strong wine flavor.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, moderately smooth. THICK.

O: This sour came highly recommended and I was a bit let down. I love sours and I find the feel of Rivertown sours to be unappealing, and this falls in line. Compared to other Rivertowns, this has higher carbonation, but is still very think and almost syrupy. The color is strange and too cloudy. The fruit notes are very good and the wine is certainly noticeable. If you like sours, try this, but I will not go back for seconds.
