Bottle courtesy of BrainLair. Pours a hazy orange brown with light tan head. Lots of carbonation. Bready, doughy aroma with notes of grapefruit. Flavor is very tart up front. Grape and wine notes. Dry, lightly bitter finish. A tad acetic, but overall enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to BrainLair. Pours a chill hazed orange with a giant off white head. Huge volcanic retention and huge lace. Nose is quite nice: sour cherries, some red wine barrel, heavier Flemish red character, small acetic. Taste doesn't deliver: sticky, papery, little to no sourness. Leaves a lot to be desired. Paper, lemon tea, flashes of acetic heat.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber, little in the way of a head, but decent lacing. Nose is more like champagne than beer. Mouth is medium weight, with mostly cidery notes and that characteristic Hair of the Dog malty old-world nature. Tart and effervescent, clean, dry finish for such a murky brew.
