3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a hazy dark brown with golden amber edges. Loose tan head. Light stringy lace. Big tangy balsamic and strawberry nose. A little smoky peat sneaking around in there but not much. Creamy medium body with mild carb. Lots of tangy balsamic and wood on the mid palate, with that smoky peat sneaking in at the end again. Good one. Much more of a sour than a soured base beer, but no less a pleasure to drink for that.
