Bottle shared dulcet night during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Huge thanks to Aaron for this whale. Vintage 2007. Pours mostly clear amber with a frothy topping. Moderately sugary, with notes of cherry candies. Quite rich, in its way. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very sweet on the finish, with some ripe cherries and a bit of bread. Solid. This one has held up well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to James for this special treat. Faded red/orange pour with a small white head. Nose is like cherry soda and Kool Aid. A bit of cardboard and seltzer. Tastes like sucrets. Just sort of a sweet cherry syrup and crystalline sugar thing going on. Slightly watery. Definitely oxidized. Just sort of sweet and that’s about it. Not awful, though.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of sweet cherry - not super sweet, but not at all sour. Clear mahogany color with a white head that ringed rapidly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is sweet malt, and the cherry is a bit like sucking cherry skin or pit. This seems to be a pretty malty lager, and the finish is not dry, but it is not overly sweet either. Sort of balanced, if the cherry bitter notes get counted. Very interesting try from a big brewer.

Bottle I brought to "celebrate" Max’s 30th. Pours reddish amber with an off white head out of the missile/marital aid bottle. Nose/taste of cherry, light cherry soy and toasted grain. Simple. Not overly unpleasant. Not great. Not terrible. Just okay. Lighter medium body.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
2007. Reddish pour. Smelled like some weird cherry candy and tasted quite the same. The sweetness doesn’t seem to meld with the type of malts and few hops that are used. Odd beer.
