   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20

On tap at Rose & Crown. Cloudy reddish-amber color with a nicely formed white head and great lacing. Aroma is fruity (cherries) and malty with vinegar and brett. Flavor is caramel malt, tart cherries, brett, vinegar, and a solventy note that has been present in other Drake’s sours. Having this next to Russian River Supplication really exposed that flaw in this one. Flavor is also a bit light. Medium bodied, dry and a little solventy on the palate. Only slight acidity. Overall, pretty good, but not a standout for the style at all.

Draught at Rose and Crown during Drakes Night. Hazy brown with a medium sized light head. Lots of dusty brett and oaky red wine character in the aroma. Pretty funky stuff with touches of brown sugar and dried apricots. Smooth acidity which is not too high against a relatively rich malty base with brown sugar touches. Tangy vinous bite with plenty of oak. Medium sweetness, drying out in the finish. Medium body with fine carbonation. The alcohol wasn’t listed for this and I missed out on talking to the brewer about it, but I would venture to say that it was pretty strong stuff. Funky, vinous, oaky, malty, lightly sour... very enjoyable stuff.

From tap at Rose and Crown. Pours hazy dark orange with with a small white to tan head. Aroma is solid cherry fruity and citric, light milky note. Smooth fruity, light citric and vague acetone like into the finish. Nice cherry to raspberry like into the finish. Mild milky and smooth fruity note into the finish. Lovely.
