3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 02-2015 thanks to a trade with mr angrypirate06. Pours with a hazy medium hued red body and a large and mostly retentive off white head with good lace. Aromas are musty and funky with a noticeable acidity and a lightly acetic nose. Under ripe plums, tannins, oak, black cherries and some bourbon. Flavors are medium tart, bright and clean acidity with vibrant fruity notes of cherries, plums and dates. Nice tartness, medium funky notes, oak, light esters. You can feel the warmth, but any sort of alcohol taste is well hidden. Medium bodied, tart, prickly carbonation. Nice to drink. I feel like I might be underrating it a little bit.

From notes. Finally found the long-lost notebook from the 4 Elf Party at Dark Horse on December 13! So, that’s where this was found. Shared by Haley as I was wandering through the crowd. The pour is a dark reddish ambery color with a quick fading white head, lingering just a collar. No real lace here on it. The aroma is nice and tart with some beautiful sharp fruits. Cherry, grape and orange are real prominent. The taste is pretty sharp and tart cherry with a good orange peel thing going on. There isn’t a great complexity to it as I’ve had with some good sours, but I’m not going to complain. The mouth feel is pretty damn good with a nice subtle carbonation and a lingeringly sour tart finish. Not too bad, but I’ve had better!

Sampled at an ESBLS. Light hazy brown with minimal head. A sweet vinous aroma. Very tart fruit flavors. Cherries bring lots of it. Big malts, too. Wood, bark, etc. Very sweet but with that tartness. Interesting and tasty.
