look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.
S - A nice combination of sourness, fresh ripened fruits, funkiness and a Sweet-tart like tartness.
A - Slightly hazy, light golden hue with a substantial bright white head and delicate lacing and some retention.
T - Very much like the smell with more of a citrus punch. The sour, tart fruitiness comes through very nicely in the taste with a perfect amount of hop bitterness. 100 IBUs well subdued by the other flavors involved. Additionally, for a 9% ABV, the alcohol was almost undetectable. Nice acidic dryness on the end.
M - Moderate carbonation. Medium body.
O - One of the more interesting beers I've had to this point, and rightfully so given all the different techniques, ingredients and blending of styles going into this beer. For such a big beer I was very impressed by how balanced and drinkable it was, while packing a creative and complex flavor profile. A real treat. Would definitely have again.
