3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at hopcat, GR, MI. Clear ruby red with small head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of tartness and lots of cherry. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a little bit mor lacto and sourness, but really sweet. Body is medium with nice carbonation. Not awful but almost at the point of being a sugar bomb.

Bottle, 4.5%. Fruity and citric aroma, reminds me of raspberry. Clear brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is quite citric, turning fruity, again almost like raspberry. The finish is quite dry, but still OK sour.
