Final Rating: 4.54/5
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 500mL bottle into a Jester King stemmed glass. Acquired in a trade
Pours a bright cherry, slightly hazy body with a bubbly white head that reduces fairly quickly to leave little lacing or retention.
Aromas are sharp and inviting.. big, juicy strawberry aromas upfront mixed with tart lactic, vinegar, oak, farmhouse funk, cherry, lemon. I could smell this all day.
Upfront the strawberry shines with a pretty acidic sour berry taste, lemony citrus on the follow through with a nice oakyness to compliment. The finish is tart, unripe berries, funk, and a sour fruity bite. Mouthfeel is light and easy to drink. Tough to sip this one!
Overall an outstanding beer, nicely balanced and very flavorful.
