TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees
Nice hazy golden colored liquid, almost cloudy. One finger head of foam that dissipates smoothly to leave a nice filmy covering. Very good lacing.
Smell is powerful to the point of room-filling. Not that that's a bad thing, though. It's quite pleasant. Tart sour apples. Honey sweetness. Band-aid phenols. Slight pepperey spiciness.
Overall it smells like a nice big basket of tart fruits.
Man that is one good sour-bomb! Taste is very much like cider on steroids. Big, powerful and tasty. Definite sour apple presence. Light honey sweetness that brings a small bit of balance. Acidic presence of fresh squeezed lemons or slightly under-ripened peaches. Nice bit of spice on the back end. All wrapped up in a slight bit of musty funk.
Nice crisp and clean in the mouth. Nothing overpowering. Kind of unexpected for a sour, but quite enjoyable. Very satisfying and easy to drink.
Mmmm! This is one tasty, tasty bottle. Would like to have it over and over again. Very highly drinkable, as long as you aren't opposed to sours.
