750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber brown body. Ruby notes. White head. Wispy surface.

Smell - Musty. Brown malts. Nutty. Acidic and oaky.

Taste - Sour, kinda lemony. Brown malts and bit roasty. Lightly winey in the back end. Oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Medium body.

Overall - This worked pretty well, despite the dark malts.

Spencer hosted an AMAZING tasting and broke out this gem tonight... Thanks Buddy!! Pours a sorta ruddy amber with a decent off white head.

Tart apple skin with a good oak push.. underripe plum and tannins.. lightly acetic with some background malt/raisin qualities.. a bit dusty.

Light body and good bubble... exceedingly drinkable..

All jokes about "tasting rarity" aside, this brewery is on to something.. I dig the lower ABV sours.. Please remember the little people when you make the big time.... Very cool Spencer, thanks once again!
