3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Avery SourFest 2013. Pours a dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Whiskey, caramel, dark fruity, spicy aroma. Tangy red fruity, spicy whiskey, a touch boozy, toffee flavor that’s fairly tart and somewhat acetic. This was ok but honestly, I haven’t been a big fan of the whole series.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, shared by phaleslu. Hazy orange-red color. Some bits of yeast floating in the body. Minimal off-white head. No lace sticks. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Medium body. Lightly dry in the finish. Nice fruity raspberry aroma, some oak, wood. Tart taste, lightly spicy. Solid sour. Don’t get much bourbon, though [for some reason I was under the impression that this was bourbon barrel-aged]

Bottle. Slightly hazy brown pour, slightly soapy white head and an aroma tart cherries and a bit of dry wood. Flavor is also woody cherries, hints of red wine, mellow tart raspberries and finishes with a nice bite and dry. A steal at $9/bottle.
