COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Wow! Some rich cherry aromas to go along with a citrus tartness and oak richness. There is a medium body with more cherry a nice rich malty that is slightly hidden by the tart cherry. The finish is clean with hints of sweetness that balance the tartness.

Ambro206 (268) - ITALY - MAY 11, 2015
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015: Birra color rosso intenso interessante ma forse un poí troppo levigata, poco entusiasmante. Gli aromi di frutta (prevalentemente ciliegia) legno e latte acido. Equilibrata lungo tutta la bevuta. Corpo medio e carbonazione media.

Reddish brown pour from 22oz bottle from Blackwells. Off white head. Sweet, apple, cherry, musty, and flowery aroma. Taste is cherry, tart, grape, a tad vanilla, and apple. Flows like water, so smooth and delicious. One of the best of this style that iíve had.

This is a very fine beer indeed. There is so much going on when you taste this, itís hard to describe. It has a fantastic aroma, itís sour and sweet, it has good body, and a lovely oaky finish. A real classic, unique in its kind, and no other in the style comes even close.

Sample at wild beer fest. One of those things you always see at the store but never grab. Decent drink. A little on the sweet side. Some tartness lots of fruit. Oak and a bit of vanilla to smooth things out a bit. A little funkiness on the nose.

Aroma is acidic, sour cherry notes, some sweetness, Bit hazy, ruby red, foam quickly dissolves. Medium sour in taste, based on aroma Iíve expected itíll be at least bit sweet, but thereís none :) Medium/light bodied, thin, average carbonation. Pleasant finish, initially delicate bitterness turning into lasting sourness.
