4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 2011 vintage, shared at game night. Very hazy light orange with a lively off white head. Interesting aroma of lactic sourness and soft barrel traits, with surprising notes of chocolate and stinky feet. The palate is both sweet and sour in terrific balance, flavour notes of vanilla, plums, chocolate, yoghurt, light leathery dryness. A softer sour offering, with a surprising and beguling complexity that enhances drinkability. Awesome beer!
