4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled: 7-2 -2013
Bronze Medal Winner 2013 World Beer Championship
A thick/rich looking non-transparrent medium earthy brown. Any head to speak of relatively white/off white in color and quickly dissipating
Tart fruit, banana, red apple, almost has a red wine nose
Very tart, light mouthfeel and easy drinking. Slight alcohol note, fruit, cherries, figs, yeast, sherry that ends with a slightly tart and aged fruit finish.
This beer has a wild and interesting blend of tart fruit and ale characters, it is light yet slammed with flavor . The sour elements aren’t over the top but rather add dynamic and are surprisingly refreshing. Batch No. 6 won the 2013 Bronze at the World Beer Championships and for good reason. A big thank you to my friends at Ranger Creek for sending me their selection!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Dark dirty caramel, deep brown, thin sudsy sandy head, no real lacing (to be expected).   Soft woody and unripened cherry on the nose.   Smells pretty good, but its a soft example.   Similar on the tongue, woody (oak), with unripened cherry, but also some dark pitted fruit.   Soft overall, not too tart, only a wee bit dry.   Pretty pedestrian, but its still fairly tasty.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Finish has a little bit of mulled spiced wine like attributes.   Simple overall, a bit lighter, but with a slightly spicy finish.   Thanks Bill!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle Julie brought back from San Antonio. Pours hazy ruddy brown with a transient tan smear. Rather tart cherry aroma. Rather! Med body, more or less. Mouth twitches at first contact. It is sour with some dark malt and fruit underlaying the cherries. It is and finishes tart/sour. Tho it mellows out with time. Good drink.
