complex and slightly fruity taste - a quality beer - though because it’s been aged in the cask for a couple of years can be a little tough on the gut.

Pours clear Brown with a red hue. A nice off white lasting head.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Couleur brun rouge. Arôme de raisin et de certains vins rouges, avec une belle acidité mais pas trop sucré. Bien équilibré, assez légère au goût, bien agréable a déguster.

Consider the flavor a smack across the face in subzero weather. This beer cuts into you like a paper cut from a porn mag: it stings, sure, but there’s still a naked woman staring at you. A bit over the top for my taste, but I respect this--it knows what it wants, and knows how to get it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium head, light lacing, and amber red in color. A sour/tart aroma with a fruity tart cherry candy taste and medium body. Surprisingly dry. Refreshing, I really enjoyed this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle poured into tumbler. golden brown color with slight head. Aroma resembles more a champagne than a beer. flavor is very sour with a fermented fruit flavor sweet like an apple. Very carbonated and fizzy. It was good but definitely a sipper. A little too tart for my usual tastes

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark reddish-brown with a beige foaming head which died away to nothing fairly rapidly. Poor lacing on the glass. Aroma – sour fruit, “burnt toast” and yeast. Watery on the palate and with flavours of sour fermenting fruit/grapes, yeast and some burnt maltiness. Definitely too sour for my tastes – more like drinking a bad port than a beer!
