bhensonb (11263) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 1, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Aroma of slightly sour cherry over roasted malt. White head that doesnít last long. A cherry amber or copper color. Smooth, fairly full bodied, with creamy carbonation. Thereís a note like a bit of Brett. Or wood. Or cherry pits. Itís got an underlying sweetness after the initial unsweetness. Sweet brown fruits come up. Not at all sticky sweet, just not entirely unsweet. Finally finishes cherry/woody. Leaves a woody bitter ending. Itís pretty dry en fin.
