  • From a bottle label November, 2011.

    Pours slightly cloudy with a huge amount of pristine, white, tiny bubbled foam. Retention quickly runs away. Lacing doesn't exist much.

    Aroma Is funky, almost acidic tartness that has a twist of cherry. The funk is old, musty, almost over aged. Gives a sense of age.

    Taste is more or less: simple. Tart, really tart but not sour. There is a touch of cherry as well.

    Light body with a huge amount of tiny bubbled carbonation.

    The beer is good, it just isn't as complex as I would have liked. The layers that these styles of beer need just leaves it stumbling a bit. Enjoy!
