4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear copper blond beer with a smell, fine white head.
Smells funky, green apples, fresh mowed grass, some wood.
Tastes gently sour.
Leaves a smooth sour palate.
Mouth feel is big and lingering.
Great sour for people who are new to sours. This one is really balanced and gentle.
Great beer for food pairing also.
