Appearance is a slightly hazy ruby red with a two finger pink fizzy head.
Aroma is tart, mineral, musty, raspberry and cherry. Very complex
Flavor is cherry and raspberry seeds, tart with a little mustiness.
Mouthfeel is medium with a dry finish that keeps you coming back.
This beer is outstanding in Every way.
Its extremely similar to atrial rubicite, this being slightly more balanced.
A real treat to drink, hope to eventually get some more.

A: Clear pinky red body with bubbles running up the glass. Light pink head which disappears in an instant.
S: Cider vinegar, brettanomyces yeast.
T: Very sour and vinegary. There's some sherbety cherry in the mix but the sourness is 95% of the flavour. Apart from a subtly warming maltiness in the finish there is also no aftertaste. Okay, it does have an incredibly refreshing mouthfeel, but it can't rely on sparkling sourness alone.
O: No flavour, just sourness, but it would go down great on a hot summer's day.
