2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle of older vintage. Will definitely re-review the new batch if given the chance. Michael pours a burnt orange with little heading. Smell is caramel, sweet & salty, light cherries plus an old ale? taste is overwhelming with bitter cherries and finishes dry. Something seemed a bit off about this one. It wasn’t very enjoyable for the 5 of us who sampled it.

This smells pretty good - some dark fruit and wood. The problem is the flavor - moldy cherries, caramel, just... old. Not good overall.

Sour red smell. Pretty general mild sour red taste with a definitive malt character. Medium body, low carbonation, and no foam.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light brownish beer with a tiny indescribable head on top. Aroma is tarty, oaky, fruity. Flavour is light tart, loads of oak and red fruits in there. Very dry mouthfeel, no carbonation. Aftertaste is long and light tart. Decent stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Bytemesis. Pours murky, dark red, almost brown with an off white head. Nose is full of tart cherry aroma and dried fleshy fruit. Taste is a smooth and less tart cherry with some slight raisin and oxidation, but isn’t quite papery yet. Light cocoa and a hint of chest thumping sour. A smooth and creamy malt backbone with light vanilla as well. Very good.
