pours a red amber with a small pinkish white head. Aroma is all cherries, hint of sour. Taste is again all fresh sweet cherries, cherry pie, with quite a bit of spice, only the slightest hint of tart. A bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Really not a sour/wild ale but still very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This sour must be a blend because there is plenty of sweetness that almost overpowers the tartness of the beer. It’s full of spice, a touch of smoke, vanilla, and a creamy mouthfeel. I’m not sure I like it. It’s good but I think it’s a bit sweet for me. There is something here, it really could be wonderful, but like I said, too much sweetness for me.
