3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a lazing orange head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity combined with lighter notes of brettanomyces and some acidity. The flavor is sweet and at the same time rather acidic from brettanomyces, combined with strong notes of fruit - especially peaches, leading to a dry bitter end.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(12oz bottle) Lightly hazed dark amber body topped by small beige head that rapidly diminishes to a ring. Aroma is moderately sweet, cherry sourness, oak, light caramel. Taste is medium sweet, grape/vinous, cherry, oak. Fairly sour. Medium body, some acidity, quite drinkable even if a bit thin. This is yummy, and I recognize that my spare description doesn’t do it justice -- thanks to artusory for hauling it back for me.
