A - Golden body with some oranginess to it. Nice full off-white head at first that settles down to a consistent foam covering. Good lacing.
S - Vague vinegar, an apparition of apple, hint of mint and just a little gin.
T - Sour, yes, but not overwhelmingly so. It's a concentrated sourness that feels like it's sticking mainly to the middle of the mouth before sliding down the throat. The vinegar flavor and slight sweetness brings to mind a combination of a white wine mix with an apple cider. Later the sweet & sour mix covers the entire tongue.
M - It hits just about every part of the mouth in the end. Tart, but not tongue-curlingly tart. Fuzzy carbonation tingles the nose a bit.
D - The style makes for an acquired taste. It's not really for me, but I can sip this one as well as any of the other top-notch tongue twisting styles.
