On tap at Bottlemixx.

A - dark reddish amber with a large, dense, off white head that has great retention

S - tart, cherries

T - tart cherries, sour, lactic, oaky, winey, mild malt presence

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This was delicious. I was excited to have found it on tap. It has a tremendous flavor that is complex yet drinkable. The tartness isn't overpowering either which helps the drinkability. This is not a style I typically go for, but when I saw the chance to try this one I jumped at it. I would definitely have this again. It was very enjoyable.

P: Dark murky brown body with a frothy cappuccino head that swarms to the edges. Great wet lacing that gingerly grasps the edges.

S: Sweet sugar plums, tart limes and lemon. White grapes, candy alcohol and vanilla French oak.

T/M: Taste follows the nose with musty aged yeast, tart apple peels and pears sprinkled with pippali pepper.

O: Great complex yeasty fruit flavors. Nice and refreshing beer that I really enjoyed. Anxious to do a side by side with Jacobins rogue. Cheers!
