Clear red color with foam that dissipated quickly. Good bit of cherry forward smell. Taste is still cherry and quite sweet. Not overly sour or acidic. More like cherry juice. Drier finish.

Raspberry colored ale with minimal head. Jammy berry aroma, very fresh. Raspberry and cherry flavor, of coarse. Somewhat overwhelmed with an earthy funk. Moderate acidity, mostly citric in character. Borderline medium body. Lively bubbles. Dry finish with a grainy texture. Solid. The seemingly excessive funk took away from the experience slightly.

Reddish brown, no head, but some effervescence. The aroma is fruity....berries and cherry, a bit of grain, and not a lot of malt or hops. The taste is tart and refreshing...spritz and lots of fruit...I get more raspberry than cherry. Not sweet at all, this is a dry and engaging beer. Medium in body and nice.

This is an awesome, easy to find sour! Big cherry flavor and a refreshing tartness. So drinkable, it almost feels like you're drinking a soft drink. I highly recommend this beer to anyone that enjoys a good sour/wild ale.
