look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a 12oz Tear Drop @ Bier Stein

A - Pours a deep garnet w/ ruby highlights and a 1 finger thick tan head that slow fades to a thin cap. Lots of bubbles.

S - Light barnyard smell up front followed by cherries, spicy hop notes, and a light lacticness

T - Sour bite, cherries and lemons, dark fruits, caramel, toasted biscuits, light barnyardiness in the finish, spicy hops.

M - Medium/Light body, dry semi-bitter finish, fizzy carb, and a sour bite

O - Enjoyable, the two beers play well together accept in the finish... the bitterness and sourness leave an odd sensation/taste lingering. Aside from that, the play between sour/spicy/sweet/bitter is enjoyable.
