VISUAL: deep dark red bronze. Low lacing, or head.
AROMA: Big Green apple, jammy, caramel sweetness, cherry pit, citrus zest
FLAVOR: Sharp sourness, clean and sour and malty- like biting into a fresh picked Granny Smith Apple. Some brown sugar and Caramel in the flavor.
MOUTHFEEL: Big Mouth feel with puckering and thirst quenching.

Overall a great one. I like Le Terrior more. But overall great
