On tap at Pi on Delmar for SLCBW.
I didn't realize this was a brown ale base. I'm not sure what I was expecting it to look like I guess, but definitely not what I got. Dark caramel-cola brown, some visible bubbles running up it but basically no head to speak of. Nothing special.
Smell is some earthy funk, some oak, granny smith apple, some citrus. Smells really nice. A bit of cherry - actually more cherry than the Kick.
Taste is a lot of acidic tartness upfront. Some apple, funk, hay, cherry, bit of earthiness. Really similar to the nose, but man is it acidic. I felt like I needed to eat a Tums after drinking that. Very tasty, but that acidity is a bit much.
Mouthfeel is excellent. On the lighter side, bubbly carbonation, pretty smooth. Very good.
This is a solid sour, decent complexity and great taste. Great tartness. I just wish it wasn't quite so acidic!
Serving type: on-tap
