3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz boxset tasting. Aroma like Consecration, lightly acetic with currants at the fore, some cherries and pixie stix candied notes, barnyard funk. Flavor is heavily acetic, with minor off notes of metal and astringency. Finish just vanishes.
From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickey’s 30th birthday bash on November 05. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a nice reddish-brown with a light tan head that falls slowly to a ring with a couple spots of soapy lace. The aroma is light sour citrus up front, a little bitter zest, and a light currant that blends with the cherry well. It’s a real interesting combo, but it balances well. The flavor is very similar. There is a crisp fruitiness to it that just works and a citrus sour on the finish. There is a hint of bitterness and a light alcohol, but it’s really well balanced. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly sweet fruit and a hint of sour on the finish. Damn nice beer. hackobock (4045) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016

Taste is sour and fruity. mouthfeel is dry, tart, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with sour cherries, currants, hay, minerals, barnyard, vinegar and lemon zest. Cool version!
