4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2009 vintage bottle pour shard by Diceman. Thanks for this unexpected surprise. What a beer this is. Rating from notes. Pours a thick bright swirling purple color. If i didn’t know better I would think somebody was using water color paint in this glass. Beautiful color for sure. Huge sour cherry, blueberry, and blackberry for the most part. I pick up a stronger blackberry than anything else, even though I know what’s here. Huge sour fruit finish. Damn. Awesome beer here.
