Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of cherries, almonds, malt, brettanomyces, and a bit of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherries, almonds, brettanomyces, vinegar, and alcohol, leading to a dry and tart finish.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled, thanks pantanap! Hazy orange brown. Peculiar aroma where oak and bourbon meets cherries. Sweet with lots of cherries, only slight oaky tartness. Low bitterness. Well made, but the combination of bourbon and cherries doesn’t seem to be optimal.

Taste is tart/sweet cherry, medium malt-caramel, hint of bourbon in background, some spice hops. Good effervescence. Easy. If they brewed more than 5 bbls I’d drink this all day.
