3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is quite cloudy amber, which looks neat when put up to the light and the breaks in the head mess with its illumination. Mild off-white foam that doesn't stick around more than a few minutes.
Aroma has a pleasant, vibrant and spicy smell that to me hints citrus and star anise.
Mouthfeel is medium-thin for me, not creamy but a little bit effervescent.
Taste starts with a mild / low sourness and takes on a sweet / bitter combo that's reminiscent of arugula and kaffir lime rind, slight pepper but moderate bitterness that lingers.
Overall a cool barrel-aged entry into the sour beers with a bitter interest that many other sours lack. Mild sourness for me, I like my aged ales to be quite tart.

25.4floz (750ml), no date, paid about $6 sale price. Poured into a large snifter, appearing amber in color with an off white head. Sour smell in turn is moderately sour palate of dried leaves (somewhat hairy if you will). In sum this is a fairly malty sour with a medium body that is two thumbs up from me.

Thanks Vran(s)? Matt? Don't remember Murky brown body with an off white head. Sweetish aroma, dominated by soft, well integrated chestnuts, quite nice! The taste, however, is nowhere near, light and dry, dominated by a sharp acidity. Eh. Just nowhere near I expected, especially after smelling it. melush (4970) - SPAIN - SEP 18, 2017
