3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from DanGeo. Mild mahogany with a light brown head that completely fades. A strong cherry and light oak aroma, some very light cough syrup, some tartness to balance the syrup, slight nuttiness, highly caramelized brown sugar (slightly burnt even), some roasted malt, low carbonation and fully body, enjoyable but better to split a bottle.

Bottle from Kuhnhenn. Pour is red/orange with a large pink head that fades quickly. Aroma and flavor of cherry pie, sour mix, light caramel, and booze. Finish is a bit hot, but not bad for the ABV.

Bottle receiver as extra in trade. Thank you umich03jm! Pours hazy reddish brown with a rather small reddish beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, sour and fruity with dark bread, caramel, lemon, cherry juice, hay, soil, moist wood, barnyard, lemon zest and hints of balsamic vinegar. Taste is sweet, slightly sour and fruity with dark bread, biscuits, lemon juice, cherry juice, moist wood, moist soil, hay, barnyard, leather, kumquats and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny dry, tart, tiny boozy and medium to fu bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and sour with dark bread, caramel, butterscotch, lemon, cherries, moist soil, moist hay, moist wood, barnyard, kumquats and lemon zest. Really cool! Very balanced which I didn’t expect. Perfect sweetness, sourness and fruit juice mix. Yummy but no way it’s 12+% strong.

’11 Bottle in January ’14 from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Muddelled brown red. Huge tart cherry nose, light mustiness. Full bodied, sweet and sour pure cherry flavor, light spice. Cherry overwhelms whatever oud bruin characteristics this might have, but for the purity and intensity of it, I can forgive it. Kind of blown away how much fruit is still on this 3 years in.
