On tap the the Republic in Minneapolis.

Deep red-brown body; clear with a thin head that soon reduced to a ring.

I had a typical reaction to this in that the aroma was a bit unappealing but the flavor was good However, in this case the aroma was nearly neutral (but too much 'vinegar') and the flavor was very good. Nicely tart and moderately fruity,

O: Excellent for style.

11.5 oz bottle from Total Wine. Lovely dark cherry color. Starts with hint of cherry, and sourness comes on strong, followed by a lingering mild taste of cherries. Very nice.

This poured a nice copper almost ruby colour with a minimal white head that disappeared quickly. The nose was slightly vinegary but sweet at the same time. There was some green apple and brown sugar rounding it off. That vinegar went away on the taste, but was replaced by sour apple and cherry notes. It is rounded off with slight malt and wood hints. The carbonation is quite active but helps to balance out the sour tartness that perfuse the back and sides of your tongue. One of the better sours I've had lately.
