Enjoyed at the Eccentric Cafe.

A- A medium brown with a small off white head that doesn't stick around. Good clarity.

S- Tart apple, slight vinegar, lemon, oak, vanilla, slight funk.

T- Similar to aroma nice medium-high level of sour, apple, lemon, light vinegar, vanilla, and funk.

F- Medium, a good easier to drink sour.

O- This is one of my favorite sours and Bell's beers. It has nice complex flavors and isn't rip your face off sour. I really enjoy the barrel character that comes out in this one, it really complements the sour.
