3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby hued brown with a thin white head. Funky barnyard up front, bretty and woody. Quite sweet, soda like really, but not overly cloying. Really just like a slightly sour soda, with lemony acid, a good amount of sweet malt, and a touch of funk. Interesting, and a good deal better than I was expecting. Finishes up with some gentle lingering acid, and residual sugar.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Bill. The beer pours to a really hazy deep brassy body with a thicker white head. The aroma is sweet and sour funky star fruit and jack fruit. The flavor is sweet, but not overly so. Some sweet candi sugar and fruity base of slightly funky acidic fruits. Generic fruitiness but good flavor overall. The palate is pretty sweet but has a good texture.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from a 355 mL bottle from OTM. The appearance is a crystal clear deep apple juice hue with a small white head. The aromas are apple cider light yeast. The flavors have a nice sweetness, apple, apple cider, malty, cinnamon sugar. A certain deeper sourness comes through on some sips. The mouth is medium to fuller bodied with a low carbonation. An interesting style. Seems like a cider with a touch of vinegar. Iím glad I got to try the style.
