Teku glass. After opening, very lively carbonation. The beer alomstly exploaded out of the bottle.

A: Hazy orange liquid with very big head, which dissapears very quickly, no lacing;

S: Very nice funky aroma - lemon, apple juice, basement, oak and wine. You can smell lactic acid. Touch, but only touch of booze.

T: The start is sour, kicking and sharp - quite funky. Definetely you can taste apple juice, in between some sweetness - honey The flavors are very tart, gastric, yeasty. The end in unbalanced - some malts, sour fruits. The aftertaste is pretty mild, dull and animal hair like. Despite high ABV (10%), no alcohol recognizable.

M: Medium bodied and dry. Finish is semi-sweet. Very lively carbonation in the beggining. No alcohol warmth.

O: The beer is really aliving, like caffeine kick. Maybe some say that it's pretty unbalanced and chaotic. The Phi is very drinkable, you don't feel any alcohol. Great for hot, summer days.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head consisting of large bubbles that died down a bit, leaving lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with some notes of oak and cherries.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of sourness and oak with notes of cherries and other fruits such as apples.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol—it tastes more like a 7% abv beer than a 10% abv beer.
