3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to beerandblues2. Pic coming soon! The pour is a deep, clear maroon with no head formation. Yellow bubbles form. Nose is spicy oak, sour cherries, old grape jelly. Taste is very hot...pretty acetic with some massive amounts of mouth-puckering sourness like Warhead candies. Big tartaric acid quality. Not bad at all but certainly a slap your face sourness. Odd nose. Overall a decent Flemish red type of sour.
