Smell Rating :: 24/24

Taste :: The taste was very much like the smell.  There is a slight underlying bitter finish.  It delivers on its promise.  It tastes a lot like sour cherries to me.  Very tart.

Taste Rating :: 35/40

Mouth feel : Surprisingly it was a not a flat beer based on the pour.  It was not under-carbonated and had the right mouth feel.

Mouth feel Rating : 10/10

Overall : This is a straight forward sour beer.  It isn’t very subtle.  It is going to hit you with a lot of tart sour flavor and if that is your thing it will be right in your wheelhouse.
