3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Special ordered bottle from Alberta distributor. Shared with my wife.
Aroma: Sour, Funky, Wood, Dates and Burnt Sugar.
Flavor: Tart, really really tart, apple skin, grape skin, pineapple, berry, wood.
Mouth-feel: Flat, thin, astringent. Lingering flavor that at times "bursts" in my mouth. Made me think of "Wareheads" candies that I might have eaten as a kid. My first bottle I was somewhat overwhelmed by how unusual this beer is. I had the 2nd bottle a week later and really enjoyed it!
