3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a dark purple color. Very carbonated. Aromas of sour funk, berries, vino, vinegar. Taste is ultra tart, lots of sour dark fruit and some other spices mixed in subtly. A little too tart and higly carb’d to really enjoy it. Tasted like a fizzy grap candy soda.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark pour, seemed almost a bit slick. Aroma is sour, funky, vinegary, woody, some fruit like pear and cherry and lemon. Flavor had some spice, wood, fruit and lots of tart sourness with funk. Prickly on the tongue, very acidic.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep amber brown color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma consists of hibiscus and tart notes with light funky ester. Taste is a complex mix of tart notes with fruity flavour courtesy of the berries and hibiscus. Sour level is bit more pronounced then I would have expected but not overly so. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Alcohol is not apparent though not sure it is required to have such ABV for this beer. Good, would love to try this one again.
