3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: hazy brownish red, tiny fizzy light tan head quickly vanishing to a smattering of upward prickles. Aroma: sour cherries, leather, hint of molasses, balsamic demi glace. Taste: extremely tart and sour cherries, wet oak, leather, tootsie roll; as it warms, balsamic notes become more sour and pronounced. Finish: alcohol (9.3 according to the bottle) is remarkably well hidden, but thereís a growing astringency to the back end. Notes: Bottle labeled 2014. Incredible sour. 9.3% abv, with no hint of it in the palate? Thatís remarkable. As it warmed to room temperature, it became a little unbalanced toward the vinegar side. At that point, I started mixing it half and half with their Tahoma Kriek, which was one of the best beer decisions Iíve ever made: the result was about the best sour Iíve ever tasted. Bottle from Sarah for Annibeersary 2015, via Craft Beer Kings.
