3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a very deep reddish purple appearance with a dark pink head. The aroma has a really rich dark berry nose to it. I suppose it’s a bit like black cherry dessert bars. Soft mouth feel. Rich flavor that’s quite tart. Really juicy, black pie cherries. Tart finish. The richness of the black cherries is pretty amazing even if I’m not a crazy fan of the brew. Interesting.

375 ml bottle purchased at Dave’s Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Pours a deep red with a fizzy pink head that quickly dissipates. Very pleasant aroma that is fulled with sour cherry along with some oakiness lurking in the background. The flavor is lovely with ample sour cherry, bright and tart, again with some background oak and just a bit of vanilla. Tart and bright on the palate. Quite enjoyable.

Pour from a bottle is a nice opaque reddish black with a red head. The aroma is a subtle sweetness. When it hits your tongue you immediately taste the sweet cherries and then goes into the sour with a slight oak flavor. Leaves a tart after taste.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark red wine color with a little bit of white head around the rim. Smells of sour cherry, red wine, vanilla, honey. Taste is a medium cherry sour, some vanilla, red wine flavors, dry wine finish, a little bit of grape juice taste. A tiny bit of hop bitter at the end. Refreshing and tolerable sourness that has enough sweetness and a dry finish.

2013 bottle. Pours a deep cranberry red with a fizzy cranberry pink head. Aroma is cherry with a slight buttery/waxey smell that I think may be from the oak. Taste is tart/sour pie cherry with a little vanilla. Slightly sweet and a dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught 2012 ed. @ Mikropolis. Pours opaque dark red with a small pink head. Aroma is very fruity, almond, cherries, cherry-stones, oak and hints of brett. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and light tart. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes dense cherry fruity, dry and almond bitter. I’d prefer this to be tarter to achieve freshness and greater drinkability. Aging might correct this.. Time will tell.
