2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample @ EBF.
Appearance: Hazy golden with a small white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Quite yeast with rotten fruits, light spiciness, caramel and hints of red wine.
Taste: Rotten fruits/garbage, caramel, light spiciness, citric notes and red fruits.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Long lasting garbage / rotten fruits finish.
Overall: I don’t know if there was a problem with their beers at EBF, but this one and their Prelude were the 2 worst beers I had at the festival and the only two with (strong) garbage and rotten fruits presence. Awful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). This vintage is 6.1%. Looks good; a very hazy caramelish apricot with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells damp and earthy with notes of cherry and oak. A bit of spice as well. Tastes like it smells, but with less of a cherry presence. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was received in a trade from Doran. It poured a rich hazy pink color with a big white head with good lacing. Nose is cheery and wine barrel. Medium body and a carbonated mouth feel. Flavor is big on vanilla and cherry and the finish shows the wine barrel wood and sour cherries. Really great beer.

Bottle via a trade. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of cherry, wine and grapes. The taste was a little musty with some cinnamon, cherry and vanilla. The aftertaste was of spicy cinnamon, wood, grape, cherry and vanilla. There was a hint of lemon tartness. Just plain awesome.
