4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great beer that pours a ruby reddish brown pour with fizzy fading head. Aroma is ripe sweet cherries and some funk. Taste is moderately tart with a sweetish fruity cherry finish. The funk is pretty strong but the amount of overipe cherry sweetness balances nicely.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is deep reddish purple with a medium reddish purple head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is bursting with sweet cherry notes followed by sugary cherry Kool-aid and a light funky tartness. Flavor is much less sweet than the aroma. Loaded with cherry tartness and a light funk. The cherry is present but is more in the background than the aroma led me to believe. Not overly complex but quite good. A great beer.

Dry, tart mouthfeel, medium body. Long finish with the same copious amounts of cherries found both in the aroma and in the initial flavor. Nice. 131019

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Deep, intense (yes, I said it) garnet red colour with a dark pinkish-purple head that recedes quickly. This is the most beautiful hue of red I’ve ever seen in a beer. The aroma is very interesting: funky yeast with notes of body odour, concord grapes, and new leather. Very funky palate, lightly medicinal, juicy concord grape, dark cherries, light pepper, light petroleum, grappa-like dryness. Incredible balance makes for supreme drinkability, gulpability. Wow.
