3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand bottle:   Deep reddish caramel, thin sudsy off-white head little lacing.   Looks like an aged sour red brown.   Old and young cherries on the nose, sweet vinear, slight oak.   Similar tongue, slightly acidic.   As it warms a bit of raisin and dark pitted fruit come out.   Liking this more than I thought I would.   Dry, leaves my mouth watering.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes like a young Goudenbond, slightly less eccentric.   Lingering sweet and dark pitted fruit like vinegar sourness.   Unexpectedly good.   Thanks for sharing Tex!

Not usually one to like funked out styles with higher ABV, but this is AMAZING. Damn I wish I had more. Sampled at Texas Craft Brewers and then got second sample just as it ran dry by Real Ale owner (Thanks, Brad!) What, me describe it in eloquent prose? Who the hell do you think I am, Martin?
