4.04/5 rDev -4%
Appearance: Pours out a burnt auburn influenced ice tea brown color capped by an inch of foam that provides a surprising amount of lace
Smell: Woody, with oak and berry tones; moderately lactic with a hint of caramel and vanilla
Taste: Caramel, oak and vanilla, up front, with the lactic berry flavors developing in the middle; the oak builds in the finish and there is a slightly acetic character that lingers though the caramel tone also remains present
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat puckery
Overall: Not quite as fruit forward as the Belgian versions of the style, this is enjoyable and balanced without overwhelming the palate
Thanks, sj3324, for the opportunity
