look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured from the 750 ml into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy reddish-brown with a small off-white head on top. Some splotchy lace left on the glass.

S: Sweet-tarts. Apple sour candy. Red wine. Wood.

T: Tart candy - sweet-tarts or now and laters come to mind. Apple brandy. Red wine is definitely noted. Tannic wood at the finish. Modest musty-ness. Finishes with a good tartness.

M: Light to medium in heft, carbonation is modest.

O: I generally don't like sour beers, but I can appreciate this one. Splitting the 750 ml is more than enough for me, but unlike some other sours I've had in the past, I'm not choking this one down and reaching for the drain-pour. I suppose that's a backhanded compliment if there ever was one, but for a style that's a bit difficult for me, I'm OK with this.
