Bottle thanks to KingCecil. Pours a deep dark red with a medium off-white head. Strong berry aroma with the raspberries most prominent, followed by the cherries with the cranberries coming through as well. Some nice acidity and light funk as well. Taste is medium sweet, very fruity, and mild-medium sour. Finish is very lightly sour, very clean. Light bodied, well carbonated, super refreshing. Beautiful, wish I had more.

750 thanks to Dylan! Pours a deep ruby red color, very bright, with a medium fluffy white head. A huge nose of raspberries, sugars, tart wood. The flavor was unexpected and interesting: very quaffable brew, woody, tannins, light sourness, big sweet natural fruit, very smooth. Great brew. I could drink a ton.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(75 cl bottle from Toft Vin; 2nd batch) Pours a clear, ruby amber with medium, tan head. Beatuiful lace and decent retention. Very sparkling. Aroma is fruity with dominant notes of cherry with a slightly tart accent. Oily texture, medium body and a tart finish. Taste has a degree of sweetness that balances the tartness well. Very pleasant and drinkable for the style. Girlfriend says: "It’s like a really ripe black cherry."

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Hunahpus Day 2013 (Tampa, FL). Pours a rich deep ruby copper hue, gentle haze, lively carbonation, great deep glow and frothy offwhite head laces well, sticks around. Aromas are sour cherries, oak, gentle red wine. Muted, lactic, touch balsamic, gentle bready malts. Oaky. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, some good cherry and oak character, gentle red wine, balsamic, toast, and gentle sweetness. Vanilla tannins, red wine, more muted but in perfect balance. Middle is a touch sweet, oak and vanilla, sourness is firm but never overwhelming, preaching balance and blend prowess. Nice flavors, cherries and oak, some red wine, and gentle toastiness. Vanilla, lactic yogurty feel is mellow. This is an accomplishment as far as balance. Damn nice. Gorgeous pour.
