3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery, pours a clear dark golden with a white head and some spotty lacing, the aroma has some nice fruit touches with a little bit of the whiskey coming through, the flavor has a front end of a tad bit of sour fruit with a finish of oak and whiskey, was hoping for a little more out of this but not bad by any means.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour on tap at GTMW 2013 (Madison, WI). Pours a deep orange amber hue, gentle haze but pretty light. Striking glow, mellow frothy whitish head dies to a film. Aromas are gentle sweetness, raspberry, firm oak and gentle spirit. A touch wild, mellow sour fruit. Initial is gentle, a touch warm, bready and bretty. Some wild elements. Firm oak tannins, a bit of tartness into the middle. Gentle red fruit, oak, spirit. Backend is a bit dry and tannic, funk. A bit hot as we round the corner. Finish is dry, tannic, hot. Some mellow fruit, mellow wild presence, messy and unfocused. Ok.
