3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 Bottle into wine glass. Hazy yellow, slight bit if head dissipates quickly. Lot of stuff clearly floating in the bottle that doesn?t make it out in the first pour. Dry, cider like nose with some minerals, maybe like a nice sea breeze. Mostly sour in the mouth, with more mineral amd the barest hint of coriander in the edge. Fast refreshing finish. Not a lot of complexity, but refreshing if you like sour.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow to orange beer with small bubbly head that went away in seconds. Aroma has sourness, but not apples (although this resembles a lot of dry cider in a way) more like some berry or something else. Taste is first sour, then a bit salty and ending with nice combination of both. Some fruit notes are there but they’re not that distinguishable. Light body and low carbonation, it’s almost like some sour juice. Not bad but strangely different.

Gosa molto buona e dissetante, salata al punto giusto. Al naso e in bocca si avvertono anche abbondanti sentori citrici, aciduli, che ricordano i lambic. Leggermente fruttata.

The balance between the lactate, coriander and salt is perfect. But it is not as sour as the American versions that I love!

Pour was a hazy to cloudy deep orange gold with near nil head and lacing. Aroma of hay, citrus, earth, herbs. Flavor of the same, faint spicing, faint sour apples, wood, lemons, some cheese, some salt. Mouthfeel moderate carbonation, decent body for style, acidic. Pretty tasty and refreshing.
