3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark red with a short tan head. Aroma is tart, infertile fruits, some oak, citrus, and horseblanket. Flavor is sweet and very farm animal. A slight pleasant tartness and hints of lemon and a very slight malty bread note. Medium bodied and foamy on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells dark and thick, more like malt than beer. Dark but clear, hardly any head, only minimal lacing. Dark and malty on flavour, there is a lot of berries on the after flavour. A bit too much alcohol prescence. Smooth and creamy, but not too exciting on the swallow. Not bad, but a bit of an unusual blend of flavours - this seems more like a beer experiment than a true beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep maple syrup brown with little head. Malty aroma of apple, pear, oak, and sour notes. Flavor is a little underwhelming, but what is there is good. Nice sourness and dry finish. A little watery.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 Malty fruity complex flavour that’s lightly sour. Great beer, the only problem was I only had a 250ml bottle...
Rerate: 2006-02-09 Not nearly as good this time, lighter body and hardly sour at all 13/20.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice red/brown colour with a thin light tan head that lasted the duration of the sampling. Aromas of cherries, oak, and belgian yeast. The taste is great. Sour cherries, oak almost red winelike highlights, big carbonation, nice quick finish. Very nice

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very subtle spice and fruit flavors overshadowed by a sour, tart flavor. Not an especially strong flavor. It has almost no head and pretty nice lacing. Also slightly acidic with a carbonated moutfeel. The nose is not very big. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz. bottle served in a new style Boulevard Chalice. Bottle conditioned. Brown with some red highlights. Sparse head. Not a lot of carbonation. Fruity aroma with some cherry. A bit of acetic sourness in the nose as well. Fairly sweet in the flavor however. More dark fruit and some caramel. Just a hint of sourness. A little metallic in the finish to start, but this faded. Didn’t get much wood flavor. This didn’t do a whole lot for me.
