First dark sour I've had, and dark it is indeed. Dark, dark red - almost dark purple, really. Slight head that held its retention for less than half of a minute.
While the aroma is not as strong as I think a sour calls for, it is pleasant in its subtleness. Vinous, grape jam, but not much sourness. Some oak, raspberries, and cherry cola.
Taste of sour grapes, unripe plums, and black cherries. Tart and very earthy/oaky on the finish.
Low level of carbonation and dry finish makes thinks drink like a semi-dry red.
Overall, not a bad sour and maybe something nice to introduce to someone who prefers wines, as it is not overly sour and very vinous in its subtle sweetness and dry finish.

Dark brown, cherry, and watery with a glassy look to it. Topped with a finger of brownish red head.

Barrel comes in immediately. Oaky, scotch, sour balsamic, raspberry like quality. Earthy, dark chocolate quality.

Sour, earthy, oaky, velvety. Not overly sour almost as if there is a hint of sweetness cutting the acid a bit.

Light, slightly watery body, very light carbonation.

My wife picked this up for $6 at Bruis'in Ales in Asheville. Drank in Chiang Mai, Thailand Feb 3rd, 2016. Amazing nose, great taste. Overall, a must try beer for the style.

Had 5oz. of this beer at the Draught House Pub & Brewery in Austin, TX last night. Beer was delicious in taste and aroma, but lacked a bit of carbonation and it had no head.
