Bottle pour. Batch #18, bottle number 1773. What a gem I ran into here. Always loved sours so I thought this was a safe bet. Pours a cloudy brown color with a woody, sour cherry and grape aroma. Tart apple, cherry and oak flavor with a good medium body. So much sour flavor going on. Exactly what I love about sours is in this beer. Fantastic. Loved it.
