A- Reddish brown, very little head, dissipated quickly.

S- Sour cherries and Belgian candi sugar, lactic and acetic acid. Very sour nose, quite good.

T- Sourness is milder than the nose, it starts sour and finishes like a quad or non sour grand cru.

M- medium body, slight acid puckering

O- Great beer. Will have again. The sourness is relatively mild and the flavor is not as heavy as others in the style. I will still have it again.

The beer had a tart wine like aroma. Very little head on the pour/ almost none. Dark red in color. The beer starts with a fruity (plum maybe) tartness and ends with a hint of the oak. There is a malt backbone from start to finish. The tartness is really carried by the carbonation the bubbles have a very fine feel in the mouth.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: poured from a 330 ml bottle into a pint glass, the beer literally exploded out of the bottle upon opening covering my lap with brown stains, dark red brown with an enormous loose tan head that dissipates leaving little lacing, cloudy

S: steak marinade, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar

T: tart, earthy, slightly salty, sour fruits, sour cherry, unripe raspberry

M: light with very high carbonation

O: apart from the surprise explosion the beer is good, slightly less depth than others in the style, explosive carbonation is a drawback
