Palate medium, slightly creamy, lively carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 3.5, Taste 4.5, Palate 4.5, Overall 3.875 Final score: 4.1
This is a very good ale, particularly for the price - I see a case of it in my future. The sourness is superb, just tart enough to be enjoyable but not vinegary. The fruitiness of the blended ales comes through, as does some oakiness from the aging vats, but the vanillin is low.
