look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottled on 01/28/14.

Pours translucent honey gold. The 1/4 inch white head quickly fades to a thin ring on top and leaves faint spots of lace. There are traces of floating sediment.

The smell is of apple cider, mild vinegar and saltine crackers.

The taste is of tart apple cider, vinegar and white grape skins.

The texture is light bodied with low carbonation.

Boldly tart up front, as your tastebuds adjust, the fruity elements begin to dominate the flavor. Light and refreshing, this is a solid sour offering.
