Tap, Max’s. Clear dark copper body with a wispy beige head. Nose is lightly sour with a touch of acidity and cereal grain. The flavor is nicely tart and fruity up front, zero acidity. Faded to a cereal grain laced finish with a nice snap of tartness. Light bodied, not quite fully dry, fizzy carbonation. Excellent sour. I could drink this all night and not get heartburn. Excellent sour cherry like note at the end.
