3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Hop Con 2.0. Pours a murky amber with a white ring. Sour aroma, of white wine, yeast, grass, and really pickles. Taste also has a lot of pickle juice, but not in a bad way, with lemon, yeast, kind of tart and bitter hops. Lingering sour and bitter notes. It actually worked pretty well.
