Bottle was a gusher and lost about a 1/4 of it. Pours a deep Amber with off white head. Medium lace on the glass. Aroma is strong tartness with dark fruit. Flavor is tart but not overpowering. Dark cherries, light malt, and a Belgian candi sugar finish. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall aside from being highly carbonated, this is a great sour!

Brown, lighter brown head. On tap at Mikkeller SF.

Funky, sorta metallic, fruity.

Cherry's what I first said, then I read sour apple on here. I'll stick with the former. Pronounced, forward, anything but shy, like a tart dubbel. The yeast and malt are prominent. This is as close as I'll get to enjoying a sour. I can't ever really pick up the alcohol with sour's either.
