A: Brownish red, decent head that recedes to a 1cm lasting head.
S: Caramel, Brett, Granny Smith Apples, Spice
T: Smeet malts, tart brett taste throughout, hints of spice and chocolate in the finish. Overall really enjoyable and different.
M: Smooth, refreshing, sourness coats the mouth, but its a welcomed sourness that is toned back and sweet.
D: I'll get this again if I can find it. Really tasty the alcohol content is masked by the flavors. Overall I would suggest trying this for a unique experience. A great complex beer.

On tap at Winos in BG. I had this beer a while back, but just getting around to entering the review. Boring day at work.
A. Light mahogany with dark amber hues. Translucent. Poured a thick, fine bubble egg shell head that retreats to a frothy rim. Strong laces. Healthy head.
S. Traditional JP yeast. Neutral oak, light malts. Bretts.
T. Medium to light tartness. Medium roasted malts. Neutral oak. Fairly simple flavor.
O. Smooth, medium body, medium body.
O. This is a very straight-forward, lightly sour ale. I usually pass on browns, but this is not your typical brown. This is a sour, no doubt. This has session written in BIG LETTERS. I go for this every summer, but this can be enjoyed any season.
Serving type: on-tap
