3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour at GABF from notes, nice reddish pour with slightly pink head, aroma brought notes of dry oak, vanilla, sour cherry, tart lemon and lactic notes, some hints of funky barn and dusty in there as well. Taste was a big bouquet of sour and sweet cherries, some lemon tartness and hints of funk, some oak as well finished it off dry and tart. Nice brew.
