3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Brassin Public® 2016. Pours hazy light brown. Aroma shows the sourness already. Medium body with a lively carbonation over a nice sourness to round it all off. Towards the palate the flavours change to more booze and the advertised foin. Juicy sour dry palate. Nice.
