On tap at Coffee District. Served in a flute.

Appearance - Deep red body. Thin white collar and a few wisps at the surface. Filled to the brim, so apparently it doesn't pour with a big fluffy head.

Smell - Acetic aroma. Caramel malt. Rich and deep caramel. Nice oak.

Taste - Sharp vinegar sourness, but not too strong. Dies down as caramel builds. Oak and vanilla permeate the whole beer. Finishes with a puckering dryness that I feel on the insides of my cheeks.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Ample sourness, but never overpowering the flavors.

Overall - An excellent, easy-to-find sour. Pricey, but then again all sours are. Doesn't always have to be rare to be good.
