4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Mikkeller bar. Deep brilliant dark blood red with an off white head. Vinegar and cherry on the aroma. The flavor starts light and tart then blasts you with a huge punch of cherry. I’m talking like New Glarus level. Big. Some red wine as well. Lively palate with medium acidity. Really awesome beer!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle... RBSG 2014… Jack was nimble, Jack was quick, but Jack couldn’t avoid this beer’s roundhouse kick!… Dark brown pour with flashes of dirty-orange and a small, fizzy, white head that doesn’t stick around for long. The bouquet is mainly earthy and woody with some sour cherries also sneaking their way into the mix. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is an intermingling of funkiness, sourness, fruitiness and woodiness layered nicely on an underpinning of caramel. Finishes tart and fruity. World class beer!

Taste from the bottle at the brewery during RBSG. Clear red brown color. Thin ring of off-white / khaki head. Awesome flemish sour cherry oak wood aroma, light spicy tannin. Medium to bigger body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Perennial. Reddish copper/amber pour with an off-white head. Tart red fruit such as cherry and berries. A bit of apple, red wine vinegar, and some lemon. A light malty/caramel sweetness and some vanilla. Flavor is a bit heavy on the Jolly Ranchers. Lots of apple, cherry, and berries. Lemon juice and vinegar sourness. Hints of sugar and caramel. Not my favorite of the beers offered during RBSG.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at brewery during RBSG 2014 Bus Tour. Lots of dry fruit and cherry, with some light vinegar and a touch of woodiness from the barrel. Taste is smooth and has a moderate apple and jolly rancher character to it. Didn’t get an overpowering cherry aroma or flavor, but a nice sour beer nonetheless.
