I ad this at Flying Saucer. Pours reddish-brown with a off white head. Taste lightly sour, cherry, dark fruits. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Dark but clear red with a tight foamy head. Certainly more mellow than the usual sour Petrus that I’m used to finding in the States. Gentle caramel sweetness with a lot of light red fruits. Sugar plums. Cherries Jubilee. Fantastic!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a huge tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has some caramel and brown sugar, raisin...all subdued a bit by light earthy/woody notes. Flavor has raisin and roastiness with subtle leather and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a slightly roasted dry finish. Very subdued beer but complex in its restraint.

Reddish-amber, dark, cloudy ale. Active, off-white head. Aroma is like stone, moss, spring water, and cinnamon. The taste is full, malty, cinnamony, and bitter. It is not too sweet as I feared it would be. It is actually quite good. The bitterness from the hops comes in late to crush the maltiness in pleasurable fashion. Here’s to drinking a winter ale in summer in Texas!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750, corked and baled, at Budapest Bistro (Mukilteo). Pours a crystal clear medium rubied brown with a towering tan rocky head that takes forever and ever to settle. Big banana, caramel, and brown bread nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Treacly banana, caramel, shortbread, and toffee on the mid palate. Very malty with lots of yeasty esters. Sweet finish. Overly sugary.
