4.3/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pored from a bomber into a pirat tulip glass.

Appearance: Poured a dark golden hazy amber with a fingure of head. I guess I poured more agressive than other drinkers because I had no problem getting head. (haha)

Smell: Wine up front, fruit and oak/musty wood notes also. Fruity and earthy floral scents are also detectable.

Taste: When right out of the frige all you get is sour and bitter hops. As it warms sour raspberries and orange, wine and a little floral notes dominate. Lambic and tartness also apperent. After taste is sweet, almost like honey. A little hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Mostly smooth, a little seems to bite and hang in your mouth, maybe that's the alcohol but I don't know for sure. Decent carbonation.

Overall: Pretty damn good I would say, has a decent about of alcohol so you will feel good after knocking back a bottle. A good sour taste but it's not overly sour, would seek out again if it was easily found in Houston. Would like to see if aging has any changes in flavor.

Serving type: bottle
