Smelled candy-sweet with some cherry notes. NIce deep brown color with a fluffy tan head. Malts in the nose as well. The taste was quite good, iron, cherry candy, dirt, sour. Finish is dry. NIce work.

Draught snifter, Clybourn brewpub (2005 version): translucent mahogany with a filmy light brown head. Musty/dusty sour cherry aroma with the tiniest hint of chocolate. A sugary matliness also lends to the overall enjoyment. Smoothly carbonated and very dry. Browned, overripe cherries, sour iron, a bit of blood and some tannins offer an interesting and fairly deep set flavours…well done guys.

pleasing brown color with nice head. fruity and sour but not overly so. on tap at goose island brewpub. a little pricy at $7 for a snifter though.

Dark reddish brown with a thick, tan head. Fruity, slightly tart nose. Cherries, caramel, chocolate, oak, vanilla, red grapes, a touch of lactic acid and even some lightly toasted grains. The body was big and thick, luscious, even. The flavors started sweet and had a definitely fruit element to it. While moving through the body a mild oak smoothness and light vanilla became apparent. Toward the end, a moderate tartness started to show through, that was a combination of both fruit and funky yeast. This is the third beer in a similar vein from Goose Island and it is certainly the silver medal winner. Nothing compares to their Jubilation Ale, but this was certainly far better than the recent Kriek. The fruit wasn’t as sweet or medicinal and the tart elements actually seemed to be present. An impressive beer and a great surprise.
