At the brewery, served in a tulip glass.

A: Amber/brown in color. Can't see through. Very little carbonation, silky in appearance on top.
S: First impression reminds me of a wine with a hint of sourness. Cherries, apples and funky sourness. Oaky hints.
T: Pinot, cherry. Little funk. Not too sour. Tart, vinegar like aftertaste. Very accessible sour.
M: Low carbonation, dry finish.
O: One of the first sours I've tried that I really like. I'm not a sour person but this is such a well executed beer I can't help but enjoy it.

Muddy rose in color (amber-pink) with a thin white head and clumps of yeast at the bottom of glass even with a fairly careful pour. It has the awesome, tangy aroma you'd expect from the style, with sour apple notes and other subtle fruity notes, including cherry and plum. Tartness and the fruit alike continue over into the taste, but there's more sweetness and blended smoothness than many other sours. There's some carbonation and syrup in the mouthfeel, but it comes off lighter than many of its peers. It's a great beer.
