Pours a dark reddish brown with a head that quickly dissipates and leaves no noticeable lacing.
Smells of overripe Granny Smith apples with a hidden note of oak seeping through, scents aren't overpowering, almost hidden.
Strong front end with a heavy fresh cider flavor giving way to a lime tanginess combined with a bitter (almost Gueuze-like) flavor that lingers for a few moments. The tart bitterness in this brew works very well, and for me they've hit the balance perfectly between subtle ripe fruit and the sour stone fruit ending.
The feel is great, with great balance from beginning to end.
I can drink an entire bottle of this, and might even want seconds, which is rare for a 750ml serving of any beer, regardless of how much i enjoyed it.
