A: full thin head, spotty but persistent lacing. 70's brown.
S: sour apple
T: sour, musty, sweeter finish than first taste
M: thin, surprisingly insubstantial for a darkish beer, dry finish
O: Watery sour apple. Not unpleasant, per se, but not particularly laudable.

Poured from a 750mL bottle.

A: Clear red-brown with light tan head.

S: Tart and funky. Much like the Grand Cru, with slightly more bright fruit and less complexity.

T: Disappointing. Very light, rather fruity, vaguely sweet, and barely sour at all. It improves as it warms, becoming interesting and even more fruity.

M: Smooth and drinkable.

O: A solid beer; drinkable and pleasant, but the Grand Cru puts it to shame.
