When put up to the nose this one is pretty damn nice. It’s a nice sourness, not over the top, and the cherries come through really nicely. But both the fiance and I agreed that the taste was rather lacking. The really nice sourness and cherries were there but it was just really really light and faded away really fast off the palette. I just kept on drinking and drinking it hoping it would all add up but it didn’t. I really just wanted a bit more from this beer.

375ml bottle pours hazy toasted red with small half finger head. Nose still holds lots of nice cherry pie spice, a hint of funk, round toasted crust and some cereal. Taste is medium tartness, round cherry and berry spice, toast, bread crust, a bit chalky. Finishes mostly dry with earthy toast and bits of semi-sweet roud tart cherry. Still tasting really good!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted on 1/27/13 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle. Pours hazy orange-amber with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is dominated by earthy, natural cherry with some caramel malt underlying. The flavor has a bit more caramel malt prevalent, but is a nicely sour lemon acidic, with tons of cherry. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long caramel and cherry finish.

375, heavy champagne bottle with cork and bale. Wow, thanks, B! What a treat. Pours a murky dark rubied garnet with a loose tan head. Forceful tangy sweet tart pie cherry nose with subtle balsamic and white vinegars counterpoints way in the background. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy sweet tart pie cherries on the mid palate as well, soft tart counterpoints from the ferment. Not a lot of base beer showing through anymore.

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.
