The tannins on this one gave it a tart flavour, which along with the cherry had an interesting interplay. Didn7t really jump out at me though.

The last of the brainless tasting my friends and I enjoyed inside the tent in Zion while it rained cats and dogs slash snowed outside and we were pretty good by this point. Cherries are definitely prominent but in a sweet way. Possibly the best of the bunch, though I do love raspberries more as just the fruit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a crystal clear rubied dark amber with a light creamy tan ring of mousse. Fresh fruity nose--both cherried and vinous. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Some oak, some red wine, some light pie cherries on the mid palate. A little brown sugar underneath that, maybe some caramel. Pleasant light finish from all these elements.

Flat, luminous apricot color. Smooth body bit of cherry soda aroma and flavor with a slight Belgian twang underpinning. Green cherry finish. Ok overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 2/8/13, Release # 13
Aroma: The nose has some sour cherries, wood, barnyard funk, and yeast
Appearance: It pours a reddish color with a small, quickly dissipating head and no lace
Flavor: The taste is on the tart side, with some wood, funk, wine, and fruity flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has soft-to-average carbonation, and a dry, tart finish
I found this to be a fairly interesting and worth try offering. It has a nice tartness to it, some funkiness, and mustiness too.

22oz bottle. Release #14. Strong oak aroma and tastes the same. Cherry taste is somewhat faint to me. Zero head. More bubbly than anything. Eh..
