_angst_ (4466) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours hazy red with a small pinkish white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is fruity with crackers, grape juice, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, barnyard and lemon zest. Taste is sour, fruity and tiny funky. mouthfeel is dry, tart, tiny astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with tasty complex grape character, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, wood, barnyard and lemon zest. Simple and simply great. Highly drinkable despite the high ABV.

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle @ Mike’s House. Thanks, Mike. Ruby colored beer with a tall but short lived pink head. Very acidic, not surprisingly. A lot of berry, cherry, and grape. Some balsamic and red wine vinegar. Tannic fruit skins and grape. Some oak, grass, and a light musty, blue cheese funk. A little bit of a cherry candy. Just an overwhelming lemon juice note to the finish. A little bit much.

[ bottle ][ 6oz ][ @tasting ][ $ ? ][ snifter ][ 10.25.15 ]
effervescent red-chestnut body, thin fizzy cream head lasts. Salty chlorine DG nose, plastic of course, light acetic red fruits. Frothy red-fruit front palate, thin profile is acetic-dominant, cola-esque carbonation bordering on Cherokee Red flavor profile, no malt balance through sweet mid palate, light rubber and plastic late. Yep, Cherokee Red that’ll get you drunk.
