3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The appearance of this beer is very reddish dark brown with a ring of off-white head around the top of the liquid, and the aroma is very similar to soured white grapes with a touch of general sweetness to it. The taste is quite sour and mildly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation, and a long sour finish.
