3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Kernel Brewery tasting, thanks to Ang. It pours cloudy deep sunrise orange, with a thin fizzy off-white head. The nose is malt vinegar, red grape skin, spice, brown bread and red berry. The taste is juicy red grape, tart grape skin, strawberry, cherry, sweet raspberry, caramel, hay and straw, with a light tart finish. Medium body, average carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Perhaps a bit too sweet for me, but nice nonetheless.
