dogfishho (653) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours a murky amber/brown with a nice white head. The aroma is filled with citrus fruit, sour apple, blackberries, and red wine grape skins. On the palate, the sour hit is significant, but it fades quickly enough to make the beer feel very refreshing. There is also a touch of sweetness on the finish to clean things up. Almost feels like an imperial berlinner weise (which I know doesn’t make any sense) in that it is tart, but super drinkable. Very nice.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball (though I’ve had this many times). Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, tart cherries and berries, oak, some red wine, some acidity, a splash of apple vinegar, nice malty sour balance, solid enough to do again.
