12oz canned March 8th 2023.

On the pour a nice and fine 2 finger white head formed on top of a lightly hazy, with some sediment, pinkish, golden amber body.

Aroma is tart, and very slightly oaky, much like wine, with a bright and dry faint malt in the background. Definitely coming off as wild and sour. Slight metallic twinge. Not super fruity.

Taste is similar to the aroma, but ever more tart bright and dry. Despite this, in the finish there is a slight, bit definitely crackery malt flavor. Solid but Sour Rosé is slightly better. The fruit is hard to specifically pick out, but it definitely plays a role here in the bright almost juicy flavors.

Feel is full, but incredibly dry. Not quite puckeringly tart, but it's close. The finish is surprisingly long for a sour, and is probably what the fruits are contributing most to. Not the most crushable.

Overall this is an interesting beer, but a bit overpriced. It is however a relatively normal and seemingly pretty legit fruity wild sour.

I think I might have had this one too old, but it tastes like your standard sour. I'm getting some cherry notes but overall just tart with a standard fruited kettle base. If you look for it there might be some deeper complexity, but only in a very slight tinge of aged maturity and not much else.

I had this beer from tap at our local pizza joint. Had just gotten back from trip but Ralphie wanted to go out!

The beer was poured from draft into a shaker pint. Sort of a pinkish brown color with no head or lacing. Sour cherry smell and taste. Flavor like a cherry limeade. Refreshing. Tart. Good feel. Not bad but probably not something to get again.

Nice sour flavor, balanced with cherry and good mouth feel. Surprised to enjoy a beer from Oklahoma this much.

pours a slightly hazy deep red body with light pink frothy foam head that has moderate retention and leaves slathers of lacing behind as it settles to a murky cap with big defined halo.

aroma is faint tart cherry.

taste is smoothed out tart cherry with a squeeze of lemon and a yeasty kick that comes across with a low spice to it, almost like white pepper.

feel is medium-high carbonation and medium-light bodied that runs ultra smooth and finishes lightly dry with a low tart cherry aftertaste that intensifies slowly as it sits on the palate.

great looking brew that has an ultra-comfy feel to it while still entertaining a tartness that gives it a nice complexity that is super easy to sit on and enjoy. shame it only comes in a 4 pack

Not sure how sours hold up to age, so benefit of the doubt here that at 6mos it has deteriorated. Pours a near-clear dark magenta with a few fizzy bubbles on top. Aroma is all tart berry, as is the flavor. Not much in the way of malt backbone, which is what I really look for in a good sour, so pretty one-dimensional.

Pours a hazy magenta color with a foamy pinkish head which lingers. Berries including strawberry and raspberry on the nose along with some lemon, cherry and vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a tartness which is followed by a balanced berry flavor.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, reddish color with a pink head of bubbly foam. It left some thin rings of lace on the glass. It smelled of cherry, lemon, berries and sweet caramel. Nice tart cherry taste with lemon and other fruits. Some caramel sweetness, too.
