A bit tangy, but not sour. the name comes from how it's made...like sour milk...sour cream.

Absolutely not sour. I like putting it on French fries with tomato and chili and bacon.

It is not at all sour. Like victus_maestro said, it's a great accompaniment to spicy food and is used in some bread recipes. Also, when added to sauces it gives a nice creamy texture. You could also use it in place of yoghurt when making a raita dip for an Indian dish. Just mix the sour cream with mint, finely chopped cucumber and if you like, a little coriander.

It isn't sour necessarily, it is more of a mild tartness (similar to yogurt, but not as strong, in my opinion). It is excellent for cutting spiciness, and adding a coolness (in terms of flavor). It is not intended to eat on its own, but is great on things like baked potato and almost any Mexican food I can think of (especially with enchiladas), and on more unorthodox things like pizza (though for that I prefer Ranch dressing). It ranks up there with ketchup and mustard as my personal "must have" condiments.
