Bouteille partagée par Rciesla. Thanks Ryan! Arômes de fruits mûrs et de chêne. Robe ambrée assez foncée, très trouble, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. Très boisée, les tanins de chêne sont très présents. Un beau côté de fruits rouges bien mûrs se développe également. Légère présence acétique et belle finale sèche (tanins de chêne) et lactique. Intéressant.

thirdeye11 (5549) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2010
(750ml bottle #370/378 thanks to ericandersnavy) rich deep red/brown pour with light white bubbles. Nose of sweet cherries, pipe tobacco, lightly tart, fruity, wet wood, and raspberry puree. Taste of sweet raspberry and other stone fruit pits, cherry, pipe tobacco, a little too sweet, wet barrel. Not lactic, but wish it was. Linger is sweet and reminiscent of the pipe tobacco throughout.

Backlog from sour fest. I think that this came from Dasilky, but I’m not sure. Pours orange with a nice tan head. Nose is sweet. Taste is rich, tart and funky with some sour cherry notes.
