3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour with a khaki head. Somewhat bland aroma, but there is a nice bit of malt sweetness. Some grape, mild cherry, and a definite acetic sourness. The taste is a bit bland and watery, but as with the nose, there is some fruit character and a mild tartness. Fairly basic and mediocre, just a bit of red wine vinegar and some mild grass.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy brown with orange highlights with a small tan head. Smell is tamarind, vinegar, cherries, wood - a mix of sweet and sour. Taste is as it smells with dry, musty, woody finish. Active carbonation and light/medium body. Overall the dank, musty aftertaste isn’t the best but other than that it was OK.
