2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught. Ruby in colour, no head. Cherries and red berries in front on low level, then very sour, acidic with lots of vinegar, very harsh. Light sweetness on start. If you like vinegar it is beer for you, if not there are better sour beers on the market.
