surprised the percentiles aren’t higher on this - a fantastic take on the style. Really dialed in and elegant. Sour cherry and oak, but not overdone. Love the malt used. I could drink a TON of this, and I seem to say that about a lot of their beers.

Bottle from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Ruddy brown. Nose is mostly oak, and red wine elements...line a cellar at a vineyard. Cherry, some dried dark fruit, fresh red grapes, leather, and lots of smooth oak. Nice stuff.

12oz bottle to chalice. Light brown with a hint of red. Generous tan head that lasts and laces. Aroma of sweet malt. Maybe a hint of tartness. Taste follows. Some cherry. Mostly sweet and mildly tart on the finish. Thin with prickly carbonation.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of sour fruit, cherry, lemon, some slight acetic into a bit of sweet caramel, bread, toast, some earth. Taste was a mix of tart cherry, vanilla, some sweet chocolate, caramel, slight acetic into a bit of oak, finishing slightly tart, fairly sweet.

Drake’s 10k. Excited to try something from New Glarus, as it had been a while, and neat to see they are working on coolship beers. But this one, while not bad, wasn’t all that either. Medium amber, slight sour aroma. Flavor is lightly of soured caramel accented malts, faint wood, but everything very restrained. More cowbell needed.
