3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. Bright reddish beer with a nice pink head. Sort of a berry yogurt profile to it. Maybe a hint of fruit punch in there with the intensity of the fruit addition. Lots of cherry and berry skin qualities, some sweet tarts, and maybe even a hint of jello. Interesting stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle ... well worth the trade. Poured a cloudy rubish, pinkish tinted with a smaller sized head. Fruity, vinous notes, some woodiness, and a lighter tartness and funkiness. Some citrus and berriness. Although on the subtle side, complex and everything melds well together.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and rosé with a small, creamy, off white head. Good retention. The nose is intensely fruity, mildly acidic and lightly herbal with a modest facet of white oak. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is fruity, tannic and deliciously sour. Tart, fruity, bready finale. Thanks goes out to 50belair for coming through with this world class brew!
