4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Pours luvverly. Taste of artificial cherry syrup, gently leading to a stoney cherry acceptableness. A really acidic backdrop: acidic cream. Cannot believe this is 8.5%. Whoops. 11.30 on a Monday is perhaps not the right time for this. In any case I necked it. Wobbles between quite good musky, kriek and fairly sour Sour.

Pour on tap at Buster’s on 28th, dark reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought big jammy cherry, tart berry, some slight oak into a bit of vinegar, slight medicinal note, touch of sour grain. Taste was a mix of tart fruit, big jammy and medicinal cherry, some slight oak and vanilla, finishing slightly tart. Overall good.

Great oakey, cherry filled aroma. Dark orange brown pour. A little bit sweet, the cherry flavor comes though and blends nicely with barrel aged oak flavors. Really tasty over all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Ruddy brown with a beige head that lasts. Aroma of sweet, slightly medicinal cherries and stones, marzipan. A little syrupy, low carbonation. Very sweet with just enough brooding sourness to make you annoyed there isn’t more. Lots of ripe cherry, some wood, vanilla, caramel. Sourness asserts itself a little at the end which is a little woody and stemmy too. The finish redeems it. Alcohol is not noticeable. Hard to rate in the "French dictation vs history essay" manner: I wish they’d made something a bit different but what it is has a lot going for it.
