Corked Bottle. Poured a clear ruby color with an average frothy reddish head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour fruit yeasty aroma. Medium body with a fizzy texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet & sour flavor with a medium Sor & sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml cork and caged bottle from Cranbury Buy-Rite. Poured a deep burgundy body under an average z=sized frothy pink head that settles to a quarter inch thick and just lasts and lasts. The aroma is greatly funked up with a lot of sourness up front, cherry, ban aid, medicinal and sour at the same time. Very full body with strong stingy carbonation and an almost chewy feel about it. The flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma. Notes of cherry pie, sour candy, funk, graham cracker crusts and lingering sour cherry. This one gets better with every sip.

Deep crimson with rich cherry aroma and plenty of brett too. Thick and fruity body with a good level of tartness. Dangerously drinkable for its ABV. Lovely
