Attractive dark amberish brown with persistent foam and lots of lacing. Smell is on the vinegary side with a little deep fruity funk. Sharp and sudsy with that fermented fruit vinegar going up the nose. The lactobacillus is doing its job and eradicated any trace of malty sweetness.

Acidic but foaming constantly in the mouth helps the sippability. A rather intense, bitter woody note lingers in the aftertaste. Light body. Overall this tastes like apple cider that has soured. None of the typical beery flavors of malt and certainly no hops.

For this style, drinkability is about average. It feels like the acidity is attacking my teeth, which is not my idea of fun. This style still tastes like a chemistry experiment to me. From the 750 ml bottle purchased for $14 in Denver.
