4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dark cherry red color with a little white head around the rim. Smell is copious amounts of cherry, apple, cranberry. Taste is a sour but sweet cherry that immediately gives way to a sweet caramel malt that dries away the sour. Vanilla from the barrel as well shines through. Truly a dessert in a bottle, A vanilla cherry dream. Bravo.

Slightly hazy ruby with a big sticky strawberry/cherry candy nose. The flavor is much the same, very candy like with over sweet cherry and strawberry. Not much else going on. Juice basically. With carbonation and a whisper of a beery finish.

Dark red brown color. Soft nose with each fruit, apples, cherries and cranberries very distinctive. Mildly sweet, slightly phenolic. The mouth is like stewed apples with some oak and cinnamon with cherries and cranberries in the background. Thick, malty and smooth mouth with slight acidity hitting the back of the throat. Super well balanced. Fucking amazing fruit. Lots of cranberries and apples.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Historic Casanova Liquors. Huge fruit in nose, waxy apples and a load of berries. Very pretty reddish-brown color. Cough drops and tons of crushed berries running across the tongue. Thin body and some small astringency. Not very much like a beer, but really really tasty.

Bottled. Big tart cherry, apples, jammy fruit, cranberries in the nose, sorbet. Enormous and luscious fruits. Cloudy maroon color. Sweet, fruity, jammy flavor, nicely tangy and tart. good effervescence. Just a bit syrupy. Not all that beery, but wow, this is delicious.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle supplied by Stine - many thanks! Consumed with a whole bunch of relatives who just had to talk about television shows involving eyeglass-clad wallflowers. Paired well with Thanksgiving platters. To red wine glass, it pours a rusted red-tinted autumnal brown with which a few bubbles were shown on top. Looks like cognac mixed with seltzer. Aromas of caramel apples, cranberry sauce, apricot fruit leather, poppy seeds, raisins, sweet potato purèe, day-old bread, elderberries, sawdust, fermented cabbage, Concord grapes, stale blueberry jam, lactose, minerals, rose water, and American ale yeast. Tastes the same with the addition of cotton/denim jeans, wine lees, white tea, and sweat. Chewy and swishable - a juice punch basically. I could easily drink three more of these and feel fine. What a fantastic accident!
