2.82/5  rDev -22.7%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a very hazy golden color, topped with an avergae white head.
The aroma is soury, reminding me of new made wine.
The taste is quite mild, somewhere between the sweetness and soury feel. Not much to the finish.
Not bad, easily drinkable and quite tasty.

Pours light amber, two finger fluffy head, with great retention and really sticky.
Smell of dark bread crust, tobacco, tartness, dry citrus peel and fruity esters.
Sourness surprises at first, but for a very short while. Rather crisp start, lots of sour lemon zest, some tastier citrus too, plus peel, goes to some toasted bready malts and red apple juice. Green herbal notes towards the finish, getting drier, with some wood notes and dry leafiness, reminding of English hops.
Medium body and carbonation, refreshing for a bit, but aftertaste gets covered by roasted malts, autumn leaves and lactic acids.
This felt a bit too weird and funky, old recipe or not. Enjoyable, but an open mind and a trained palate sure do help.

Small white heat, robust yellow color.

Interesting aroma, containing funky acidity, yeast and fresh apple.

Very refeshing, altough carbonation isn’t as high as expected. Still, sour green apple and a decent, dry tartness add to that impression. Chewy, dry, mouthfeel with a little sparkling, topped by a warm spiciness. Yeast adds character to the beer, supporting the bitterness very well, also adds smoothness. As nice as the beginning is, there is no real follow up, but a watery finish, going along with a discreet bitterness and hints of salt. All in all, this is a unique beer, which deserves an ending, with a little more punch.
