Aroma of cinnamon, allspice, slight band aid funk, and slight honey. Pours red and hazy with lacing. Taste is tart with cinnamon, cherry, cranberry, honey and floral. The spice is a little out of place but I like the honey.

Deep orange, hazy, big dissipating tan head. Aroma reminds me of northern brewer hops--rustic, woodsy, minty. Also some berries, earthy horse blanket. Flavor similar but with some prickly acidity. Finishes fairly tart.

Bottle: Poured a dark reddish color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some oak and sour cherries notes also noticeable. Taste is close to most Flanders Red with some vinous notes with some oak and tart cherries with limited acidity level. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well done and probably a good idea to add some honey to cut down on the acidity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A very oaky/tannic, medium fruity and slightly acidic copper ale. Good.
How: Bottle 750ml. Canít remember when I bought it, probably around 12 months of age
The look: Cloudy red-copper body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Bottle opens with a very loud pop but doesnít gush. Nose is very oaky, I could smell the tannins (can tannins actually be smelled?), oak, cherry wood, raspberry seeds. Taste is as expected extremely tannic and woody. The dry oak and accompanied tannins sucks your mouth dry. Some acidity, fortunately the acetic acid level is kept under control. The fruitiness is there but it is mostly overwhelmed by the tannins. I got some nice grapes, red berries and even some strawberries. Refreshing tartness despite the strong astringency. Supposed to use smoked malts, didnít pick up any smoke. Very active carbonation. I would have preferred if it was more fruity and less dry astringent tannic, I usually like to let my high gravity sour/wild ales sit for a while before I drink them but I think this one is probably better fresh. A it intense at first but somehow I found the second half of the bottle easier to drink than the first half. A good beer but not worth the high price-tag, and if you are wondering why I keep buying all the Cisco Woods despite the fact that every time I complain they are overpriced, then that makes two of us.

Smells like wine and vinegar. The color almost resembles a quad and has a soda fizzy white head. My first taste I didnít think it was that good, but i am half way through a glass and i am enjoing the almost hard candy sourness of this beer. I am not a connisuer of fruity beers, but if you see it I think it is worth a try. Donít judge it based on the first sip

Pours a reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of some vinegar, grapes, red wine and oak. Flavor is similar with the vinegar and fruit dominating. Pretty damn good.

Smells more like wine than beer, with cherry, apple, grape, vanilla, and wood. Flavor starts sour like a lambic, with some cherry and apple. Finish is dry with wood and spice. Definitely not your everyday beer, but itís still really good.

750ml bottle. Dark brown with a big head. Pucker up for this one. Oak, a little brown sugar, and lots of vinegar. If thereís any fruit in this itís rotten fruit by now. Had this one for a while so maybe that plays in. A fresh bottle could be better. A glass was drinkable but certainly couldnít put down a whole bottle.
