Some of the darker notes and complexities of a sour brown, but super dry finish.

Dark rusty orange with a dense and persistent beige head. Great retention.

Smells like sour green apples. A little funky with oak. Brown sugar.

A solid balance of sweet and sour. Slightly acidic. Green apples and sour cherries. Apple cider. Brown sugar.

Mouthfeel is medium body, moderate carbonation. Slightly puckering.

I love the sweet/sour play, like a sour patch kid. Both came strong without being overwhelming.
