3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy pinkish red color with a small off-white head. The nose is certainly sour, mostly in the form of vinegar. A little bit of dark fruit and straw, but overall, it’s a fairly simnple beer. Maybe a hint of oak. Tastes similar to how it smells. Perhaps a bit more lactic than the aroma lets on, but still fairly vinegary. There is some fruit character such as black cherry and raisin as well as a bit of lemon peel, straw, and grass. Medium body with medium carbonation.
