   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 30, 2008
750mL bottle, 2007 vintage, courtesy of Glouglouburp. Thanks, Dany! Pours a dark, clear bold ruby-wooden color; thin, light-tan head with patchy medium-bubbled lacing. Very pleasant aroma, showing cherry cola, spices, and warm apple pie; nice demonstration of soft spicing and cola; a soft red-wine / vinous note. Good levels of carbonation. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: cherry cola, soft brown sugar and clove and spices; intricate spicing; good levels of acidity and citrus bitterness; nicely composed, unique beer. Lengthy finish: breadiness and solid yeast notes, lingering spice and cloves and pepper.

Dark reddish gold color with an off white head. The aroma is quite spicy with sweet malt and pumpkin pie spices (minus the pumpkin). A certain wine character is also present that adds depth to the overall experience of this beer. Flavor is very representative of its aroma but with a hint of bitterness on the finish that balances with the sweetness of the malt and the beer’s spiciness. Excellent, I am glad to have tried this rare treat!

This beer is tremendous. Aroma is complex and delicious. Tons of baking spices, but none overpower or dominate the lightly sweet, delicious flavor. Thanks a million Dany.

Glouglouburp sent me this rarity all the way from Montreal in a recent trade. Thanks Dany! Shared at Sean and Ryans apartment tasting with Brad, DenverLogan, WeeHeavySD, wetherel and many others. Two words for this beer: unique and intriguing. Hazy amber color with thin beige head and lace. Awesome appetizing and complex aroma with notes of licorice, peppery nutmeg, cinnamon spice and a tart berry character. Malty flavor with nuances of lemon peel, orange and coriander. Fairly thin bodied, but the lasting flavor and good carbonation make for a great palate. Tasty!

Sampled at Sean and Ryan’s tasting. Poured a clear reddish-amber. Sweet aroma of lemons, malt, hops. Taste is sweet and bright, of malt, citrus hops and a hint of spices. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Really nice taste and very drinkable.

750ml bottle shared by andrew. thanks again man..... poured a dark mahogany brown with a very fluffy off-white head.... aroma was initially sweet and heavily spiced up (in a good way) with a huge amount of cloves, nutmeg, and some others to round it out..... flavor didn’t sway too far from the nose. spices combined with sweet caramel malt intertwined with each other in a seemless way. truly excellent mouthfeel as it was very full, creamy, and carbonated at just the right level..... not too much wrong with this beer. i could easily have given this another point.

MJGG (924) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2008
Très belle bouteille verte de 750 ml. Arômes sucrés de fruits rouges et de caramel. Robe bourgogne coiffée d’une magnifique mousse qui marque le verre et tient longtemps. Cette bière exprime une grande complexité en bouche, toutes les saveurs étant soutenues par une solide base maltée. On retrouve une touche fruitée (cerises et pruneaux) ainsi qu’une présence d’épices (muscade, réglisse et poivre). L’alcool est bien dissimulé et réchauffe délicatement la gorge en arrière-goût. Excellent !

[1120-20080226] 750mL (c/o HogTownHarry, w/ him, biegaman, blankboy, GregClow, jerc, mds). Ginger cherry aroma with a bit of spicy yeast. Hazy, dark red body with a quick foamy light tan head. Sweet spicy yeast flavour has mild vegetable mid-tones and hidden alcohol. Medium body. Definitely interesting.
