75 cl

Pours a cloudy deep brown with a reddish tinge. Yellowish lacing for a head.

Smells of lemon, apple, sour grapes, and vinegar.

Apple, cherry, and vinegar make up the flavor, balanced by a slight oak earthiness.

Medium, poppy body with a mild fizzy carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Exceptional, the best sour ale I have had thus far. Truly fantastic balance of flavors and aromas and a delicate body. A must-try for fans of sours.
