4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Graet aroma. Red wine at first, then come belgian beer-like fruits, bananas, a hint of vanilla and some caramel. Pours dark brown with quite big, creamy head with nice lacing. Low bitterness, medium sweetness, some sourness in there as well. Complex beer, that’s for sure - I like it a lot.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 11.2 fl. oz bottle. It is a handsome looking dark brown pour with red hues and a tremendous, soft mocha head. The sour/wild aromas tend to be downplayed on the nose. Oh, they are there but the emphasis is on the toasted malts, yeast, and bread. Clean hops. The body is medium to full. The taste is also not as tart or sour as sour/wild ales can be. The smooth toasted richness comes forward before the tartness kicks in. Not being a big sour fan but this is one I could have often.
