A: Poured a dark amber/berry color with minimal head that disapated quickly.

S: An amazing aroma came off of this while being poured. Consisting of oak, fruit and raisins.

T: Tartness hits your palate immediately. That is followed by some cherry/berry flavor which is almost winelike.

M: Mouthfeel is pretty smooth for a sour, but you still get that tartness stuck on your tongue.

This is a very good beer, however I'm not sure it's worth all of the hype. I'm impressed that the alcohol doesn't come out more in this one and I can imagine it will only get better as Deschutes gets to work on it in the upcoming years. I will be trying it again when it comes out for sure.

Served In: Pint Glass
