4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2011 Bottle @ home. First time around I was moderately impressed, though not overwhelmed and was tasted soon after the release in February. Here’s my updated rating. Reddish purple appearance with an off-white head that doesn’t last. Funky, oaky, dark cherry, interesting tart sour nose. Initially an oaky, tart red fruit flavor followed by a more pronounced tart raspberry, cherry, moderately tart, funky, light barnyard flavor. Tart cherry, berry aftertaste. Awesome brew that matured nicely in the last six months.
