3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear dark red, small white head. Smell is pure cherry, sour, oak, dry, intense. Taste is dry, sharp, very sour and astrigent. cherries ( wet cherries ) some ’bloody’ like ’metallic’ taste. Perhaps a bit too dry and to carbonated for my taste, but why complain, when you have a good beer in front of you ? alvinne is def. killing it with their sours lately, and while this ain’t their best to date, it is def. worth it !
