3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Watering Hole Cascade event. Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Apricot nose with some persimmon and lemon juice. Quite acidic on the palate and I really enjoy sour beers. Lots of white grapefruit and lemon on the finish. Can’t really taste the apricots as the acidity is quite high, but still enjoyable. Probably the most acidic beer I’ve had at this point.

Sample @ home
Aroma is interesting with apricot and fruit candy. Flavour is rather tart and acidic with lots of lemon and grapefruit. Also some lactic acid tones. So acidic that drinkability suffers. The flavour and aroma are really far from each other on this one.

75cl pullon pohjat. Utuisen samea väri, ok vaahto joka häipyy nopeaan. Intensiivinen hiilihappoinen hedelmäinen tuoksu. Samettisen kuohuva suutuntuma, kuivan hapokas, hapan kurkussa asti tuntuva jälkimaku. Aika muikean hyvää.

Pours pale hazy yellow color with a large head. Very tart on the nose, herbal and yeasty notes, gooseberry bush, some spices and apricot. Apricot, rowan berries, gooseberries, some faint yeast, maybe some acidic notes, wood and earthy funkiness. Tart and fruity, maybe slightly too harsh acidic notes though.
