3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Virtually no head.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), with notes of oak, vanilla, cherry, brown sugar, apple/pear syrup.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent.
Smells like it will be too sweet, but it isnít; the acidity is quite bracing, and the tannins help too. Itís not all that complex, but itís certainly pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep copper with no head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, some funky notes, oak and wine, some fruits, and pale/caramel malts. Flavor the same with a great blend of the sourness, oak, and fruits. Would have a better texture if there was more carbonation. A good sour ale, but the carbonation lacking sort of hurts it.

On tap at BeerTemple. Clear dark gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is quite lactic, plain yogurt, oak, light lemony aromas. Taste is sour, quite lactic, oaky, slightly puckering. Palate is dry, light carbonation but mineral dryness contributes to giving it a spritzy sensation. Pretty good.
