2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark red color. Acidic and tart aromas of blackcurrant. Taste is sour blackcurrant. Sour ales always make it so hard for me to notice anything else to appreciate in the beer. It always leaves me disappointed. Hard to give an objective rating. Didn’t like it.

Pours nice dark purple. I little bit sour but a great aftertaste of cassis. Feels genuine and almost like taking a bite of the fresh fruit.
