MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Red copper, oily white head, thin ring. Meaty nose, spicy grains with tangerine tannin sweetness, bit vegetal.. SNR2010 without the oxidation and less candi. Oaky Flavor shows the red fruit up front, candi mid, thin baking soda bitterness end, hints of pith and rind but overbearing barrel and sugar qualities.

12.7 ml bottle from jammalamma. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor are tart cherries, additional fruit character, wood, some light funk. I thought everything was there, just looking for a bit more pop.

CanIHave4Beers (3212) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle via some Cates @ DSM LOL 1st edition 06/13/13



Pours a bright orang with a small wispy lil head.

The aroma is tart cherry, generally pretty fruity with some orange rind and some barnyardy funk. The beer has sort of a woody character, even thought it seems as though it was not aged in woooooooood.

The flavor is nicely sour, very tart, and full of tart cherry flavor. It’s earthy, never crosses over into vinegary sourness and has some nice almost musty character to it.

Thanks Lenin.
