Reviews on this be mind-boggling. Sub 4 my bittersweet dandelion and sorrel infused ass!

Looks old money. Smells incredibly fruity considering the absence of fruit - peach, pineapple, a crushed leaf and stem green side, slightly oxidized granny smith apple tartness. Wheat grist and a bit of pepperiness come into the flavor ... reminiscent of some of the better Fantome offerings with a slightly ramped up sourness.

Racking up big numbers in all quadrants.

Pour is golden amber, mostly clear, white head that dissipates immediately. Nose is tart grape skin, light herbal notes from the dandelion, a bit sweet, light peppery note. Taste is overly sweet, light grassy notes, lots of deeper grape sweetness, a bit of candied sugar, moderate acidity and light bitterness. Carb is very strong, semi tart dry finish, fuller body.
