3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear rusty copper with a thin persistent white head. Aroma’s sourness starts kinda sharp, but carries tones of oak, vanilla, some sort of earthy dank funky tropical fruit, maybe some sour apple bubblegum as well. Flavor is a little too acidic, with oak and grapefruit tones kinda puckering the palate. Dry bretty yeast tones finish the flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap, described as soured amber. Pour is hazy dark red with off white head, aroma has notes of sour lemon and sweet fruit, mixes to a slight gummy bear type aroma, with some hints of dark fruit and caramel. Taste is a sour lemon, biscuit, toffee note, touch of vinegar and lactic note, finish slightly funky. Ok, but a bit weird.
