look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a swing-top Deccico's half-growler into a DFH pint glass at Durge's.

A: Poured a hazy, golden yellow color with plenty of protein chain haze and yeast buildup in the glass. The thin head of bone white foam dissipated quickly but left a slight ring around the glass.

S: Very sweet, tart and fruity, like yeast, acidic hops and Granny Smith apples. There is a candied, gummy and funky essence emanating from the brew.

T: Wholly tart and acidic, the sour flavors take over almost immediately after the initial hit of sweetened, flowery malts. Dry and lactic almost, the brew takes sharp, sour and fruity jabs at the palate that are almost puckering in their attempts. The finish is dry, with a cloying, sour sweetness that slowly fades with some peppery citrus flavors.

M: Light, crisp and tart, this brew does form a slight buildup and is almost puckeringly sour at times.

O: A very unique beer and one that couldn't be had in a session environment. Palate and tartness aside, the ABV is rather high, but well-masked at 7.3% ABV, and the yeast would likely wreak havoc with your gut flora after a while. I'm not racing to have it again, but it was a different nightcap that usual.

4.08/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Nice pale yellow-gold colour.

Mostly sweet cherry-like notes on the nose with slight oakiness. Only a hint of tang. Once you taste it some more there are some funky notes as well.

Quite sharply sour taste up front but notes of fruit and wine-like sweetness balance this nicely. The oak flavour comes in shortly afterwards and lasts through the finish. Funky flavours develop through the oak to the dry finish, balancing everything out with a slight of earthiness.

The carbonation starts with a numbing tingle that accompanies the entire experience from numblingly fizzy and sour to funky and dry.

New to sours and this one seems pretty complex but has some great flavours going on.
