3.75/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a tulip glass
A: Pours a dark brown color with hints of ruby when held up to the light. There is a small tan head which fades immediately. Despite the lack of head, there is a decent amount of carbonation.
S: The nose is sour and acidic. Behind this are notes of light fruits.
T: Fruitier than the smell; definitely acidic and sour but not overwhelmingly so. I can taste raspberry, cherry and citrus. The malt contributes some sweetness as well. There is a just little bit of an herbal taste from the hops to help balance the fruit flavors. The aftertaste is short and fruity.
M: Smooth with a decent amount of carbonation and slightly syrupy.
O: Mildly sour throughout but still sweet and drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
