4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- Lemon, must, & vinegar, not overpowering, just pleasantly present.
Appearance- hazy golden color with a thin film of head.
Taste- Light sweetness, and medium sour. Tart like cherries and maybe green apple, some nice lacto acetic quality as well.
Palate- Light bodied and lively mouthfeel.
Overall- Really good sour, wasn’t worth the 45 min line I had to wait in to get an 8 oz pour but none the less very glad I tried it.
2017 vintage at toronadp San Diego. $80 it does not ever go lower on price . Yes a perfectly clean golden sour. ACHops (1688) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2017
On tap @ Toronado Seattle, 2017 version. Pours clear light golden with very thin watery white head. Aroma is fresh cut green apples, raw oak, ripe white grapes. Taste is super crisp, super light, oaky and vinous, earthy and rustic without being funky. Bracingly, deliciously tart without being palate destroying. Really stoked to finally try this. I’m sure older bottles would be amazing as well. It is outstanding, though clearly not worth the astronomical prices at Toronado(s) or on the secondary market. Never seen it at Lost Abbey but I believe it’s rarely available there, perhaps at a more reasonable price. I guess in a sense you’re paying for the rarity. MarcoDL (5470) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2017
