3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of SuzyGreenberg. Pours with loads of light tan foam and copper to amber hued body as well as small dark floaties. The aroma has tart notes to go along with a sweet apple like sense and dark fruitiness off in the background. The taste starts with a rush of sweet fruit and a Brett like tartness in equal quantities and then moving more tart and then a bit more spicy and fruity into the finish.

(on bottle) Clear rusty red, gushing white head. Interesting aromas, stricking as both withheld, yet an intense tartness. Allmost no carbonating left, while drinking, odd for a gushing beer. Still retained in flavours, dry hay, champagne, cork, zinging appels. Slight barley finish, with a tad of alcohol warmth.

A delicious beer. Slightly sweet up front with a slight tang from the rye. The finish is crisp & dry. As it warms, the sweetness mellows and there is a touch of oakiness as well as some sourness.
