Oscbert (1022) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
-a lot of funkiness in the aroma, sour leather, caramel raisin, sweet bread - pours a cloudy dark brown with big fluffy yellow head - dark sour cherry flavor with slight chocolate and bread, caramel sweetness - medium light body with very high CO2, lingering chocolatey sourness. -really digging this sour. Complex and very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
