3.5/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

16oz bottle (no noticeable date) poured into 14oz teku. Poured a nice reddish brown color with a bit more than a half-inch of just off-white head that had light-moderate retention and no lacing.

The aroma featured a nice fruit scent, some earthy grains, and a touch of yeast.

Fairly similar on the tongue, although the fruit was a bit stronger than in the nose.

The body was light, smooth, crisp, had good carbonation, and a dry finish.

Drinkability was very good, you could easily drink a couple of these.

Overall, a nice brew, as most of the Millie series is. Certainly worth trying if you see it.

3.72/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 500mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich red-orange hue with a totally clear body and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. The color is outstanding.

Smell: mild tartness along with a very berry-like fruity quality. Not too bad, although not especially complex.

Taste: very fruity indeed; currants, but also a strawberry character, are present. There's a moderate tartness, perhaps a bit stronger than in the aroma. Again, like the aroma, it's decent but lacks complexity.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this beer is not too bad, but it really just doesn't tickle my fancy.

Pours murky burnt pink. Aromas of mild lacto yogurt like sour with hints of dark berries. Moderate lacto sour with flavors of vanilla, yogurt and dark berries. Thin body is balanced with a moderately sour finish.
