3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line :
This brazenly sour ale shares plenty of blackberry fruitiness which take on cranberry angles before splashing powerful citric notes onto the palate.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the hazy, dull pinkish red.
-The soft carbonation makes the acidity feel even more prominent.
-Complexity isn’t as high as it usually is in this type of beer, but enjoyment levels compensate.
-Drinkability is low, but flavor levels are high, so it all works out quite well in the end. ;)

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The taste is incredible but extremely restrained. The backbone is vinous, but not terribly acidic or overbearing. Then suddenly flavors of freshly mashed tart blackberries start to bleed through, leading to one of (if not) the cleanest finishes I’ve ever experienced. Finish is incredibly crisp, dry, but refined from the oak. The whole thing just works.

Bottle at tasting. Pours hazy pink orange with light random lacing. Notes of wood, barn, sour cherry, light lactic, raspberry, plum skin and mint notes. Nice and tart on the tongue. Very nice budweiser here. Fuck inbev yo.

Reddish orange pour, this is a fruity bomb with some funky tartness. Some pinot flavor and fruity goodness. This is a nice sour with a dry finish.

Bottle. A mostly opaque, reddish/orange/amber beer with a small head. Aroma is acidic, very fruity, slightly vinous; berries, oak, candy. Taste is mild-medium sweet, very sour. Finish is dry and tart. The 8% abv is very well hidden, terrific sour.

Quite the tart change of pace from the Paradisi. This really shows off the wine notes. Some spice in the back but I get a jolt of sour at first and then another at the back of the palate. I got a little cherry note as well. Might be just me though.
