Comparing this 3 Floyd's Pear Bear this sour is much more balanced. Although there is no head, the beer aged in wine and bourbon barrels for two years with cherries is utterly amazing. Please grab a bottle if available in your area. It is a dark red-purple, plum color that tastes of a general cherry pie tartness and sourness. Give it a shot.

Appearance: Pours a dark redish brown with light highlights.

Smell: Very nice cherry. Deep, profound fruit smell

Taste: Sour and lots of cherry up front, heavy sourness, then a creamy sourness and oak finish.

Consistent flavor throughout, but delicious. Grapefruit pith, cherry, heavy sourness. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Very tart. Good carbonation with a very pleasant feel.

Overall: I love this sour. It has lots of oak, and a solid fruit flavor. A winner. And a beer that I can justify paying the $25 a bottle for.
