3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a murky rusty umber color with a trace of khaki foam that settles out quickly. Tons of deep balsamic vinegar, rotten cranberry, hints of sulphur and roasted malt. Lots of ripe dark sour fruit in the midpalate, cherry, cranberry... however a bit too acetic on the swallow with a heavy afterburn and lingering unpleasantness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark brown with a thin white head.
Tart aroma, fruity, acetic.
The flavor is tart and vinous, a little too much vinegar or not enough malt to balance this out.
