3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle after the RBWG Grand Tasting at the Downtown Inn tasting. Pours clear dark caramel brown with a thin, spotty beige head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is sour and fruity with plenty of maple and caramel bourbon. The flavor is sour and fruity up front, moving to the sweeter bourbon and malt notes on the back. The body is medium with just lower than average carbonation and a long sour and bourbon finish.

Sample @ RBWG Asheville After Party. Brown pour with a small head. Red berry coulis and a bit of lemon funk. I have the taste listed as ‘panties’ in my notes (it had been a long day). Interesting. Some more red berry. Simple, but not unenjoyable.
