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.

12.7oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy ruby/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of very light tartness, cherries, some pale and light caramel malts, and some light fruitiness. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A cool beer.

MrChopin (3474) - 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.
