The sour elements of this are excellent. Not an overload and actually allows other flavors to feature. I hope to see this sophistication in other sour flavors. Unfortunately, those other flavors that feature are lacking. The currants don't come through much and there is no sweetness to be found. It's like a great beer was mixed with a shitty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
