4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. 2010 version. Pours a hazy murky orange brown color. Head dissipates rapidly. Light bodied. Initially light malt fades into sour cherries and vanilla bean. Just a little bit of fizzy funk. Trying to clear out some beers sitting in the cellar, this is a very pleasant surprise.

Bottle courtesy of Daknole. Poured in to a goblet. Deep ruby brown with a slighty off-white head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma is a bit earthy, a bit juicy. hints of the tart and sweetness. Taste is vanilla and cherries. A slight bit of oak. Wow, i really like this. Reminiscent of the Wisconsin Red but a lot less of a cough medicine cherry.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012bottle courtesy of Atom Thanks dude, its tough to give this a fair rate, as the nose is somewhat benign, it smells like a wild ale, hints of cherry and oak but there is that tart acidity that stings the nostrils. taste is what counts in my book and its awesome, the flavor of oak and cherry just melds so well, it tastes great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color. The head was short, white, and reduced quickly to a thin ring. The dominant aroma was mulled apple cider, but there were also vanilla, cherry, brown sugar, oak, and red wine vinegar notes. Light to medium bodied and sweet with mild acidity. Spicy on the tongue. Fruit, oak and spice flavors akin to mulled apple cider.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle thanks to CLevar. Pours a red color with a small head. The aroma is interesting. It’s fruity, spicy almost like cinnamon, and a little tart. This smells like a fruity cinnamon gum. The taste is fruity again with a tart like sourness and more spicy cinnamon like flavors. This is good.
