At the Turtle 3. Really happy they still have it but expected the worst as it’s been 3.5 months since it came out. Murky caramel brown body, small off white head. Sourish nose, covers some light maltiness. The taste is certainly fresh, yet tart, pretty much infected. Will want ro rerate this if I get the chance. Ok low maltiness, peachy tartness. Slightly earthy. Meh.

.5l draft at the Black Turtle Pub on Decanska. Great to see another seasonal beer from these folks, something new in Belgrade. Coppery, hazed caramel brown. Tannish head, a bit soapy. Sweet fruit hops on nose, same sweet-chalky yeasting that is common to Black Turtle ’specials’. Some ruddy fruit, cherry. Mild, tart hopping, sure, this is a Red. Round and fresh, a bit underwhelming, but very nice to see. Will continue to drink this while it is around
