Appearance is cloudy yellow with almost no head. The nose is somewhat musty with a huge dose of earthiness, with tons of apricot and oak. Taste is very tart up front with a nice amount of sweetness. Oak is a little lighter on the taste than the nose. Cherry, apricot, and oak come through the strongest. Overall, very nice with to a of flavor.

The beer pours like a can of seltzer would with a loose white head that fades as quickly as it forms without lacing. The body appears to be a cloudy, dull, rusty amber with a nose reminiscent of vinegar, berries (in this case raspberries and cherries) and no distinct notes of toasted noyaux. The beer drinks with a lot more fruit forward sweetness than expected followed by a tart, dry, yet sweet palate washing. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, tart, and semi-sweet. It's definitely one of the most drinkable sours I've had since figaro. I'd recommend trying this beer, it's at least worth a try.
