4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark deep ruby unclear roasted chestnut with a decent creamy beige head. Aroma brings subtle refreshing cherry juice and a tick tart backbone with some acetate. Flavor brings a pleasant non-overbearing tartness with a fruity yeast presence and ends not quite dry, but just right. Body is not real thick, but balanced just right.
