3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasting at Ferris’
Cloudy blond color. Intense, pungent aroma, funky, passion fruit. Highly carbonated; it has a strong sour flavor, some fruitiness, some astringency and funky character, not much complexity, and not much cherry too.
But overall it’s a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dark golden pour with a substantial haze, fuzzy white head dissipates quickly. Sweaty cherry skin aroma with undertones of lemon, melon, tart lacto, heavy yogurt, & wet bales of hay. Little bit of oaky tannin notes, too. Flavor is more mineral heavy with an under ripe stone fruit skin quality, moderate acidity. Cherry skin, soft wheaty hay, damp woody funk, tannins, a bit of white great. Lemon & cherry dry up the finish along with the oak. Nice beer, though I prefer regular Ananke by a bit.
