The body is a deep and rich amber with scarlett red highlights. Strong levels of carbonation can be seen despite its slightly hazed body. Two fingers of creamy egg shell white head sit on top and is in no hurry to recede.

The first thing that hits me is vinegar in the nose. It's dry but not at all overpowering. Notes of white grapes and apple cider add to its tartness. It's quite vinous. Musty yeast and touches of cranberries add a lot more complexity to its tartness. Very interesting and complex in the nose.

Not as tart as I thought it would be. The sweetness of the apple cider is heightened. Subdued vinegar notes reside at the back of the palate and make themselves prevalent throughout. Tart and sweet cranberries pair with subtle yeast notes in the finish. There's still a slight tartness there as well but by the end it has regressed into the background.

Light to medium bodied with a good creamy feel. Dry in the finish with a tingly carbonated kick. Very well rounded and extremely well balanced.

A great intro to this very interesting style. The tartness is present but tamed. Flavourful throughout and highly quaffable.
