Review: The beer pours a cloudy brown, with a thin head and a hint of sediment. It has aromas of raspberry candy, balsamic vinegar and coffee. It drinks a hint sweet, with sour fruit, rich toasted walnuts, bittersweet cocoa, and fresh ground coffee. The finish is quite long and intense.
Bottom Line: I'm a sucker for tart beers, and this is no exception. I particularly enjoyed the interplay of sweet, tart, and bitter.
