3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque dark tangerine colored, like a rustic pumpkin color, with a thin ring of foam around the edge of the glass. The nose is hard to explain but has some gentle sourness, some fruitiness like tart green apple and apricot, and a certain Chardonnay/white wine tone. The flavor is an exceptionally quaffable sour ale with a complex, hard-to-describe taste. I can pick out tones of apple, sour apple, lavender honey, apricot, and slightly sour barrel funk, with a dry effervescent wine finish.
