The Mafka from Arbor Brewing is a 5% blended sour ale. Three sours are used to make this beer, which is also soaked on staves of Velvet Hammer casks.
The beer itself is dark brown in color with a pretty good foamy beige head. The aroma of cherries jump nicely out of the glass, and to me is reminiscent of wine.
My initial taste provided a nice burst of flavor with some slight bitterness initially, and of course some tartness. The texture was slightly thin, but the flavor does get around the mouth nicely with a good duration. But the ending does leave something to be slightly desired, as it just seems to fade out with no real break or ending.
Overall, it is a decent medium-body brew and it leaves some nice lacing behind as well.
Overall Rating: 2.75 / 5
