3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 capped bottle from Whole Foods and Capone’s. This one is a gusher. Pours turbid copper toward ruby with frothy, off-white head. Nose was tart cherry, yeasty funk, oaky tannins. Tastes dry, with notes of cherry, oak, yeasty funk. Reminds me of a yeastier cherry version of Sly Fox Blackberry Reserve. Decent kriek.

Brown/red pour. Small, persistent off white head. Lacing. Aroma of caramel and syrup. Slight tartness and dry astringency. Watery. Plums and burnt syrup. Almost a cough syrupness to it. Misses the mark for me.

750ml bottle thanks to Eric. Cloudy orange/brown pour, smallish beige airy head. Cherries as expected in the aroma, along with some candy elements, and a bit of wood. Taste adds some vanilla to the cherries, as well as additional barrel notes, a bit dusty and musty.

[ 750mL ][ 6oz ][ Texas Liquor ][ $18 ][ Teku ][ 6.25.16 ]
>> Murky red orange color with thicker head and, fantastic lace especially for style. Spiced cinnamon baked apple pie nose with hints of vanilla as it warms up. Taste begins with very soft carbonation, leather, low to no acid, Brett only it seems, low cranberry, low cherry. It hits the mouthfeel and flavors of Flemish red but has almost no acid. It works, though, being infinitely drinkable like a cross between dark saison and Flemish red. Super soft body - this one evaporated from the glass.
