1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Way too vinegary and acidic for me, every sip made me squirm, I did not enjoy it. I guess this style is just not for me!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours amber with a red tinge and a beige head. Aroma and taste of red wine, sour cherries and balsamic vinegar. It’s rather sour, but also has a sugary component that’s reminiscent of fruit juice. Overall, it’s okay, but it’s a little too sweet.

Aroma: definitely sweet with some underlying sourness; Appearance: dark red with white head that dissipates fairly quickly; good lacing; Taste: very tart with pronounced vinegar; sweet like balsamic vinegar; Palate: medium body with finish that turns more sour than tart; Overall: pretty good but not balanced enough; too tart and vinegary.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark amber with a white head, disappears quickly as in most sours. Vinegar, champagne, red wine, cherries and blackberries in the aroma. Nice balance between sourness and sweetness, cherries and apples in flavour. Not too sour, a good beer for someone who hasn’t tried this style before. Average to low carbonation, very nice and drinkable if you don’t mind wines.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Packs a lot of punch flavour wise, and while not mouthwatering sour it has a nice soft sweetness reminiscent of a good red wine.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Strong, beautiful sour aroma. The sweetness of apples, slight banana edge. Sweet, but not too saccharine. Pops the glands into action. Fizzy body and presence. It’s just damn good.
