Got this at the recommendation of friend when I was looking for sours. Thanks, Ben!
Poured into a snifter: transparent, slightly hazy gold, thin collar of head, a few stray bubbles rising quickly.
Smells citric & tart, just a little vinegary, very dry, champagne-like aroma. A good sniff yields sweet white grapes.
Taste marked by green apple, lemon juice, subtle oak. Finishes very dry with just a tiny bit of white grape in the late aftertaste.
Mouth-watering, but pretty smooth & easy-drinking for a sour. A swish in the mouth brings on the foam.
Not the complex sour I've had but still very interesting. More of a fruity sour than vinegary, while still not really being a "fruity" beer, helps the drinkability. Still, this is meant to be savored & not drunk serially.
