Thanks to hopdog for sharing this one. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a smaller bubbly head. Aroma was this great tart cherry, sweet, light funk and other berries. Great cherry notes. Flavor of fresh yet some ripes cherries, vanilla, light funk and wheat. Josh swore this was a grape bomb but he was totally wrong.

Bottle. Frothy off-white good mostly deminishing head. Red-amber colour. Light malty and light hoppy aroma. Not that sour but very fresh. Light bitter not very pleasent flavor. Plumb notes. Average finish. Oily palate. Not my favorite.

Has a real good aroma, fruity acidic, malty, bread, faint almond notes too. Flavor starts good, sweet, but then it gets unpleasent, to much contrast to the sweetness, heavy acidic, moderate bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s hazy, almost unclear red mahogany and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma is fruity and sour with notes of berries, wood, caramel, brett and citrus peel. The flavour is fruity and sourish with a light sweetness and notes of brett, lots of citrus peel, caramel, it’s vinous, and the finish is slightly dry and refreshingly fruity. It’s a really nice sour.

Tasting with Shaun Hill at Three Penny Taproom - Poured a darkish amber in color with a small off-white head that hung around to produce a small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma was roasted malty with fruits (grape, raisin), a hint of red wine and and medium tartness. Flavor is of roasted malts, red wine, sour fruit and berries. Medium sour. Clean, crisp finish. Really good...
