4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2010 vintage. Cloudy orange-amber color, wispy white head. Enticing aroma, sour and fruity, mandarin oranges maybe. The flavor is complex, starting with a strong sourness that progresses into that vague fruit and then a little too much(or higher) alcohol. Sweet/sour and dry finish. Excellent, just short of legendary.

Bottle from Lectvay, thanks again! Ruddy brown pour with a light tan head. Wonderful aromas of oak wine barrels, cherries, and plenty of acidic sourness. Flavor is tart cherries with notes of the wine barrel coming through. Very well balanced. Just the right amount of sourness to it. Just a really impressive beer all around.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle 2012 vintage, aged in the aging fridge for almost three years- Pours lightly hazy reddish orange with a thin off white head that reduces leaving just a thin collar (3 year old beer it looks pretty good!). Aroma is extremely tart, cherries are prominent, oak, very appealing. The taste is mellower than I was expecting, the aroma was more tart than the taste, oak is there but not overbearing, everything really blended wonderfully, cherries. Body is medium full and carbonation is medium. Very good if not great, from what I hear this can be extremely harsh when drank young, really glad I waited on this one. The only question now is when will we ever see this one again? The last glass tasted completely different from the first, it started really tart and fresh, then finished not so tart, blended, and creamy as hell, never had a beer change so drastically as this one, but as i look at my scores i can’t find a reason to up any of them, so they stay the same.

Taste is slightly sweet with some lactic acid, wood, some fruitiness, a bit of alcohol and a soft sourness. Medium body and carbo. Too alcoholic.
