3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Red, dark, color. Very vinous nose- red wine vanilla american oak, mushy ripe cherries. Like a light fruity red on nose. Soft smooth body. not much carbonation. Vinegar, slight mouth cleansing acidity. Some oilyness. Quite nice. Not as dry and straight forward as an rodenbach gran cru, more oily soft. But really tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a $30 bottle so I was crossing my fingers. It’s a little hazy and amber in color. The aroma was strong and a little overwhelming but sweet and fruity like cherries. You immediately notice a strong cherry flavor. Dry and very sour! This is a very sipable ale.

Aroma was dry and very sour. Appearance was a brown with a light edges, looking very watery. Taste was very bitter and very dry with a large boozy feel. Palate is watery and dry, and very boozy.
