Thin weak head. A slight froth but disappears and is pretty weak. Dark orange to ruby an color, slightly cloudy and nothing overly exciting. From a distance, almost looks like a brown ale. Several different aromas going on here – sweet fruit, vanilla, fake scent at car wash – yellow tree style. As it warms up the banana Runts flavor begins to work its scent to the forefront. Interesting aroma. I’m tasting tartness up front, the body is noticeably thin. The finish is tart as well. Reminds me of hard apple cider. That aftertaste is funky : acidic leaves a sweet tart lingering flavor. Very good. Thin body accentuates this beer – light and slightly refreshing.

Fluxing (244) - POLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Warka 2015-10-16. Kolor bordowy, dosc mocno zmetnione. Piana bardzo obfita, powoli opada, zostawia gruba warstwe i piekny lejsing. Niestety piwo bylo przegazowane, gushing i te sprawy. W zapachu spora slodycz, dzikosc, czerwone wino, lekka slodowosc i karmelowosc, suszone i kandyzowane owoce, lekki zmywacz do paznokci, lekki alkohol. W smaku pelne, oleiste, lekko slodkawe i karmelowe, kwasnosc na srednim poziomie, reszta smaku to powtorka z aromatu. Odczucie w ustach nieprzyjemne, zaklejajace i piekaco-drapiace w gardle, bardzo nieprzyjemne, pijalnosc spada prawie do zera. Wysycenie wysokie.

Pours dark and cloudy but looking through into a light a lovely deep ruby red beer appears. Aroma is tart and fruity. Taste is amazing. Fruity, cherry and sour apple with a tart clean finish. Very refreshing and drinkable. Really like this beer. Surprised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep dark red clear color with foamy soda like head. Smells like balasamic vinegar. A vinegar bite casing surrounding a grainy center. leaves a light vinegar tart behind.

Ruby reddish brown. Reminds me of Granny Smith apples. Not too sour and not too sweet. Finish is medium to short though, a bit of dryness there and some lingering fruits.
