4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy straw with a moderate white head. The head fades slowly to a thin remnant, leaving behind a moderate amount of lace. On the nose, it is quite sour with Brett, tart tropical fruits and grape. It also has a slightly spicy character and a hint of banana. The flavor is sour throughout, with an initial light bitterness and a touch of spiciness. It becomes more sour and slightly more bitter as it progresses. The finish is long and sour with slightly dry malt. On the palate, it is light-medium with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice sour, with a slightly spicy character. The finish is particularly nice and the malts are very well balanced.

draft. sweet cinnamon candies and maraschino cherry juice nose. medium-thick body, boozy / thick / syrupy and sweet artificial cherry flavoring with medium-light acid (mostly on the edges) which doesnít work at all with the full, rounded body. nose has some mild lacto fatty esters but itís mostly dominated by the sweet red apple skin and cherry juice malt.
