barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2012
Aroma very caramelised, almost burnt, but definitely NOT. Quite well done. A touch a wheat and a touch of toffee to top of a complex nose. Appearance is nice clear brown toffee colour with a tan head. Taste is wheat, very malty, but does not obstruct the palate, disappears quickly. Palate is slightly watery, but nice, a touch thick on the tongue but disappears quickly with the malt taste. A nice beer, not surprising itís won a few awards.

Interesing. Dark brown. Quite a bit of sweetness, but not a lot of sour, so it comes off as a little cloying.

angelkostvo (1113) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 26, 2012
Color is brown-red with no head. Aroma of rosehip, cramberry, vinegar, plums and a bit coffee. Taste is a bit weird, I cant put my fnger on it but I dont like it that much. Otherwise it has some fruitiness, its not really sour actually. Not my favourite, wont buy it again

ChainGangGuy (4751) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
330ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark amber-brown body with a thin, collapsing, light beige head.

Smell: Gives an impression of store-brand cherry cola, though, as it warms, some more sensible malt notes hit the snout. Still, it remains very sweet-scented.

Taste: The flavor races by tastes of cherry juice, light toast, lighter roast, plum jelly, cola to hit a relatively modest, vinegary tartness thatís instantly covered by a full-on toothsome sweetness that lasts until the rather fruit, but also very sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Sweet enough to make one shudder in revulsion (I know I did). Like cherry cola dosed with stray Pixy Stix. Oooh, you see? I shuddered again. Iíll likely shudder again when I see how much I wasted on this thing.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at Gingerman after our our bar crawl through Brooklyn. Pours a lightly hazed ruby brown with a thin beige head. Mostly smells of grain and cereal. Fruit, sweet, no tartness. Sweet candy and plums. Fruit and cola. Long sweet caramel.

Bottle at the Where the Wild Beers Are event graciously hosted by Mission Dolores. Pours a clear brown with a thin beige head. Spicy with a medicinal funk to it. Sweet, cold and menthol filled. Spicy fruit, very herbal. Interesting stuff, lightly tart on the finish.

Maak_d (10) - - NOV 19, 2012
Aroma of caramel, cherry, raisins, and vinegar. Very nice dark amber color and clarity- poured a very thin head but left some lacing. Tastes sweeter than Iíd imagined, slight oaky notes, low acidity, roasty. Kind of a sherry or Madeira flavor. Palate is semi-thick, with large tangible bubbles. Roasty

On tap. For me, too complex beer in a style which Iím not very familiarized (and I donít like too much). Very natural in the overall, very yeasty with earthy and tart aromas also present in the mouthfeel, with traces of vinegar and wild herbs. I donít know if itís good in its style, but I think that will be difficult to taste it again...

CharlieNoodles (80) - Toulouse, FRANCE - NOV 16, 2012
Bottled 0.33L. Mild nose. Pale beige fast dissappearing head. Dark brownish colour. Fruity not sweet mild hopped taste. Some additives used.

samarrr (24) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Poured dark brown with a tall lasting beige head that left decent lacing. Sweet, tart, sour, rotten citrus aroma, unsweetened iced tea, smells almost skunky. Taste definitely matches aroma. A sweet, tart, slightly sour, reminiscent of eating a package of Crystal Light iced tea powder. Kinda slick in the mouth. Not too anxious to drink another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice cherry and big yeast funk scent, taste is the same with a nice cherry roast.
