Tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Bruce Deeblo for this one. Hazy amber - brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Mild acidic start levels out in to a more mellow sourness. Generic fruits with a Flemish red balsamic vibe. Light dry tangy finish leaves a mild fruity linger. Easy drinking for it’s abv.

Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours dark brown with a decent beige head. The nose is lactic, sour, wood, earthy roast, pepper, berry, creamy, green apple and jam. The taste is tart, tangy, lactic, earth, toast, very light coffee, must, sour cola, light roast, wood, orange marmalade, jammy berry, pepper and quite a bit of acidity with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A touch acidic perhaps, but quaffable enough.

Bottle at a tasting. Pours opaque brown with a small grey-ish head. Nose is quite spicy and a tad herbal. Some cold coffee and dark chooclate as well. Yeast. Medium body, little sour touch to the roastyness of the malts, taste is like a heavy toasted loaf of bread with tart black currant jam or something.

Cool beer, like a dark gose. I love the complexity even if the flavors don’t make my favorite beer, the tartness and roasty malts and the pronounced salt make this a beer that stands out from the pack.
