4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber at Jerry’s. Darker red-amber with light, whispy off-white head / Sour and tart nose of cherry, oak, caramel, brett / Light to medium body, moderately sour with some sweetness, acidic but with very nice balance, light bitterness on finish / Flavors of dark cherry, apple, caramel, straw, chrysanthemum, horse blanket, oak / A beautifully balance and restrained sour, with good complexity. Only knock is a preference for more pronounced funky, brett character.
