look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On draft at O'Brien's

Appearance is dark amber hue, fair amount of white head sustains, minimal lacing

Smell is dominated by sour/tart/funk, light fruits, citrus, and vinegar

Taste is light fruits (pears, apricots, peaches) initially, sour tartness in the middle dominates and lingers well into the finish, simple but strong flavors challenge the tastebuds

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, light watery texture, moderate carbonation

Drinkability is moderate, a nice wild farmhouse ale that is not as extreme as other types from this category, very approachable even to non-sour fans, great overall balance

Serving type: on-tap
