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

12oz bottle code of: 41025

A - Pours a clear golden honey color with small fleeting white head.

S - Sharp vinegar, apples, grapes, hints of old wood, mild basement funk.

T - Green grape and apple skins, sour grain, very mild wood, salty lemons, vinous, finishes tart and dry.

M - Light to medium body, low carbonation.

Sharp on the nose. Not as complex as I'd hoped. Nice for a sour fix but not one to explore and stew over.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Deep gold straw to amber, "soapy" lacing.

Aroma: of fermented apple, wet expensive wood, apple cider vinegar.

Flavor: Fermented apple, oak barrel, charred barrel contribution to vanilla and caramel, wet forest floor.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, effervescent. May be more toward Medium however carbonation lifts the feel on the tongue quite a lot.

Very much enjoyable sour, Alcohol is hidden well, balanced between sweetness, and sour shining.

11.2oz bottle, served at 40-45F.

Pours cloudy golden amber with a one finger white head that leaves a few spots of lacing and recedes to a foamy ring and wispy cap.

Aroma is apple cider vinegar, funk, oak, sour. Interesting and inviting. Gueuze-like qualities. Very good strength.

Flavor is tart cider vinegar, funky, oak, a hint of some almost caramel like sweetness lies underneath, finishes with acidic sourness. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, a bit sticky, sharp carbonation.

Really nice Sour, especially for the price. Great intro to the style for those on a budget.

Poured a fairly clear golden color with light white head. Nice and bubbly, bread and esters on the nose and a pretty tart taste. It's still overall a very light beer. I can dig it from time to time, but that tart flavor would limit me to rare occasions.
