3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is ultra sweet malts, sour apple and cherry. Taste is sweet sour cherry, some caramel, vinegar, and a less that desirable aftertaste that takes away from an otherwise very good beer.

This was my first sour ale and I found it exceptionally different for anything I have had before. I was a little shocked by the taste at first but either because it was warming up or because it is an aquired taste, I began to enjoy it thouroughly. The aroma is very strong and smelled of vinegar. There was little to no head and it was a dark brown that glistened red in the light. The taste was almost like a bitter sour wine.

Light, light sourness, wood, apple, tiny bit of cardboard, easy to drink. I’ve had this lots of times, never difficult to finish off a 75cl bottle.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark purple/black color. Head slowly fades away. Smells of cherries, chocolate and grapes. Taste is very sweet with not as much sourness as I expected. Almost like a lambic, but still good for the price regardless.

750 mL bottle. Pours an amazing ruby red with thin beige head. What a color! Granny smith apples in the nose. More lemony zest as it warms. The taste is a complex sweet/sour. Lemon and sour cherry balanced with sweet malt. Light mouthfeel and a sweeter finish. This is one acidic beer - it was making my fillings ache! Very well crafted.
