A: Quite hazy, chocolate brown with lots of red highlights. No head, tiny bubbles.
S: Cherries, lactic and acetic twang, cocoa, overripe pears, some oak. More acetic/vinegar vibe than La Folie but less than Duchesse. Kind of a 'cola' vibe, this smells great.
T: Fruitiness first: cooked apples, more pears & cherries. In the center there a soft acetic sourness and a slight roasted malt / chocolate vibe. Finishes crisp, lactic and wet.
M: Low-medium carbonation allow for the full delivery of complex flavor. A very complex and refreshing beer. The slight vinegary character took me a few sips to acclimate to, but this is an awesome beer I will drink anytime I get the chance.
