3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the LCW. Pours a murky, burgundied dark brown with a dense and moussy tan head that fades to a light film of fizz before long. Overripe plums and overripe red apples on the nose, along with some husky palm sugar. Velvety, lively medium body. Overripe pitted tree fruit and husky palm sugar on the mid palate, with a fairly husky and even mildly acetic dark sugar finish. Not bad, could use a little fine-tuning to dial back the sugar and add some complexity to the other flavors.
