3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red grape aroma pervades here- were they trying to make a wine? The oak is light overall with some sourness and slight leather. Appearance is very dark amber/red with bone head. Flavor matches the nose, but with some herbal presence; the finish is sour and vinous overall. Palate is creamy with some prickly bubbles. Solid, not anything too outstanding.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish and fairly clear with a large off-white head. The aroma has lots of cherry, sharpness, vinegar and a bit of cream. It has a medium frothy body with a lot of fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with the traits from the aroma, but it is malty and has a mushy aspect to it. The finish is very mineral heavy and has a bit of a cough medicine side to it. This is okay. It has some age which I thought should be kind to the style, but maybe this one is meant to be consumed fresher than what I did.
