3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful, deep amber color, with a head that disappeared almost immediately. Slightly sour aroma; reminds me of weak apple cider. Mild malt flavor, and one can certainly tell it was aged in oak barrels. Light palate, and good carbonation. Quite refreshing.

11.2 fluid ounce bottle poured into a 2008 GABF tasting glass (yes, I didnít break mine.) Smooth, medium bodied, really rather unassuming. Understated oak-aged toffee malt flavors with hints of sour cherry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a thick off-white, tan lace. Redish caramel color. Hints of green apples, very malty taste. Finishes clean with no burn or aftertaste. Nice but not great beer.

Out of bottle smells of citrus tastes of multiple fruits pretty good I just don't think 3.50 for 1 bottle is worth it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice brown with little head. Nose is clear on oak, with malty taste and woody, slightly sour. Nothing special, but not bad.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Holy god, Iím impressed. Iím really surprised with itís low score after sitting down and enjoying this. Wonderfully sessionable, slightly sour brew, that impressed me most with its creamy, almost frothy, and oily mouthfeel. If you want to have a friend step into the sour end of the pool slowly, Iíd say this is a great way to do it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich frothy head, cherry aroma. Dark clay color. Sweet flavour, also sour but not tart sour. Malty, cherry flavour. Not refreshing but certainly interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep brown with hints of amber. Head disapears as I pour this brew into my trappist glass. Aroma: dark malts, wood, vinegar. Mouthfeel is watery. Woody flavor with sour lemon notes that get you right on the sides of your mouth. I like this brew, I only wish it was meatier. Maybe slightly underrated at 76%

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fully diminishing thin fizzy off-white ring tops up a clear medium brown body. No lacing. No particles. Few small bubbles. Aroma presents malt being moderate hay while hops are very faint herbs ... Yeast character is moderate earth. Also, there are evident evocations of sourness from oak barrel. Dominant in the nose. Cherry and vanilla impressions. Initial flavor is heavily sour while development is medium .. Finish is short and astringent. medium body... oily texture... Soft carbonation...
