What an amazing beer from Michigan. This beer is all about what I would hope for in a sour. The look of it was a dark amber, with a lighter pale head. The nose was super funky barnhouse, and a little sour fruit (strawberry, lemon). The taste was pure juicy sour and some more strawberry and sour blackberry. The mouthfeel was perfect for the style. Great beer!
