3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown pour with a thin light brown head. Pleasant aroma of acetic acid, sourness, oak and mild fruits. Good flavor of sourness, acetic acid, oak and fruits (figs, cherries). The body is medium with a vinous texture and low carbonation. This is very interesting, although the carbonation could have been a tad more lively.

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark amber/brownish hue with tan head. Aroma is lactic, fig, toffee, acetic, slight funk, molasses. Mouthfeel is decent with medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice tartness in the following. Overall this was ok but reminded me a bit if Balsamic Vinegar.

Really disappointed in this beer. I had expected some sourness but this was really not to my taste, or others in the group
