3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brilliant copper with a slight reddish pinkish tone. The aroma is of sweet tart cherries with a big backbone of strong boozy pale malt cereal tones. Taste has some slight sour cherries with a mild sweetness and some strong pale grain maltiness, a bit of toast, strong boozy cracker/biscuitiness, and a faint cherry tone on the finish. Most of the body comes from the strong Belgian blonde background.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle, as pictured. Poured a pink-red, sorta hazy, not too much head on it. Smells a little fruity, a little wine-ish. Taste is similar....kinda dry, definitely a dry grape and red-fruit (cherry, raspberry indistinguishable) flavor to it. Easy to drink but you definitely feel it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Epic-Denver. Pours red and slightly cloudy. Sweet aroma. Cherry. Sour and funk. Very strong on the front end, sweet and cherry that overwhelms any sort of malt. Slightly dry finish. Hides the alcohol well, but still ends with an acidic vinegar aftertaste. Bad Tannins... go away.
