75 cl bottle

Pours hazy golden. No head retention.

Smells of citrus and tart apples. Some grassy malt.

Hints of cereal malt underscore a flavor of tart grape and citrus and a potent green apple cider crispness. Pronounced apple aftertaste.

Light to medium body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

This beer is really a hybrid of wild ale and cider. Lots of tart apple flavor and even then hints of wine intermix with a really clean grain bill. That makes this hard to grade as a beer because it really doesn't taste like beer, but it's pretty great for what it is: a sour wine-like ciderbeer. Pretty unique and worth trying if that sounds appealing. Drinks deceptively fast for the abv.
