Aroma: sour and red fruit – not super intense, rich malt in the nose. Not a lot of hop aroma.
Brilliant coppery brown (Burgundy), 1” finely bubbled off white head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing.
Flavor: Fairly dry, has a slightly cherry plum fruity sweet-sour finish. A little prune especially in the after taste. No appreciable hops.
Very effervescent, medium body, creamy and refreshing.

Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown with a finger of tan head that dissipates into a cap and
leaves mild lacing.

Aroma: This beer has a unique aroma of stinky cheese dominating the nose, and there is quite
a bit of mustiness coming through as well. Tart granny smith apple and a touch of candy sugar
are found in the background.

Taste: Starts off with a light, but noticeable malty sweetness. Followed by a good amount of
sourness, but it's not quite jaw-clenching. Finish is quite tart.

Palate: Body suggests a higher ABV than 5.5%, but it does go down easily, and the carbonation
level is about average. Must, stinky cheese, and tart apple make up the lingering aftertaste.

Overall: This is quite a tasty beer! This is the first beer that I've ever used stinky cheese as a
flavor descriptor, but it did work well in this one.
