It pours brown, 1 finger head of foam and good lacing. I see some sediment in my glass.
It smells very funky, fruity, oaky with light vanilla notes.
That’s all in the taste too but there’s quite a bit of tartness going on as well, tannins like in wines. Tastes good.
An interesting brew but worthy of multiple repurchases? For me, no.
