Good funk to this beer pear and plumb tastes that leave you with a slight dry mouth feel. Sour but not overly sour.

Possibly the first sour beer I ever tried, its still almost exactly as I remember it being six years ago. Caramel coated sour apples, a bit peppery, I recall thinking there had to be cherries in this and being shocked that there were not. Still paramount to an understanding of the style.

Drank straight from the bottle. Initial reaction was surprised because I didnt know it would be sour. Not bad, but too sour for me
