3.89/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Slightly hazy and copper colored but totally still; no head and no lacing

Smell: Tart green apple with an earthy, cidery aspect

Taste: Very cidery, with the tart green apple tones in the forefront; a subtle sweetness develops, underneath, with the wood tones emerging, after the swallow; the flavors merge in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body but no carbonation

Overall: Not sure what happened to the carbonation here but the lack of it impacted my enjoyment of an otherwise complex beer

The appearance was a sort of hazy copper color with a nice finger’s worth of white foamy head that glistened and slid off at a gentle pace. Not much lace, somewhat stringy and sliding. The aroma had a sweet to sour green apple up front. Slight pears, a touch of floral, sly sweet wood, hint of earthiness, slight grassiness, super light evergreen and a little bit of vanilla all create a nice balance underneath. The flavor was sour at first and developed the sweet with the wood, vanilla and pear as it opened up a bit more. Gentle semi-sour aftertaste with a clean sour to sweet finish. The palate was almost medium bodied, seemed just a touch under making this somewhat sessionable as the "sour" doesn’t create an overly abrasive feel over my tongue. ABV felt just a tad hot, but I see that this is still a bit "young" in it’s age. Overall, for the most part, this is a real winner and will only get better in time.
