3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
18th November 2013
Hazy deep amber beer with a tidy peach coloured head. Palate is dry and crisp. Nice sourish twang here. Sourish fizzy cherry sweets. Winey tang - grapey. I assumed this would be a red wine barrel but maybe it’s white wine. LIttle wood. Finishes light and crisp. Very nice.

Bottle from Stearns. Hazed light amber pour with an off-white head. Decent cherry aroma, some hints of vinegar, and lemon zest. Light oak, vanilla, and grass. Pretty solid aroma. The flavor isn’t bad, but not as good as the nose. Cherry, lemon zest, and some oak. Hints of grass and oak. Pretty simplistic. A light sweetness from the fruit.

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange amber with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma is sour fruit and sour malt. Med body or nearly. Flavor is that sour brown Flanders thing. It really is. Cherries come through. It seems to fit near the middle of sour browns. It finishes reasonably sour cherry with some sour malt. Just excellent.

GABF 2013. Pours a reddisho orange appearance with a white head. Funky, tangy black cherry, vinous, raspberry, barnyard aroma. Really easy drinking flavor with flavor of sour cherries, funky fruits, light vinegar, and a touch of caramel. As I remember, jcnielsen didn’t particularly care for it, but I’m kind of regretful that I didn’t go back for more pours.
