3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured deep, ruby/maroon with a thin, light khaki head. Noticeable sweetness here with barrel and oak flavors. Some acidity, but not overly tart, and I wouldn’t see this was necessarily sour, just a hint of acidity to show the bugs did their thing. Some dark fruits and cherry skins, yeast spice, grenadine, vinegar, and more oak even through to the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@ SF. Medium brown with sudsy head. Smells like a mix between sour apple and watermelon jolly ranchers. Porter sour, would get an even higher rating if the sour held on and didn’t give way to sweet. Dry finish. Good for a Sam Adams.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
$9.99 for a 25 oz. bottle from my local Shaw’s Supermarket. Snifter show’s a brown with red hues for color, with light retention and mild spotty lace. The nose was mildly tart cherries and some real weak barrel aromas. Tart cherry and caramel malt flavor with a light hop bitterness and spice. Oak notes show up as well. Has a plum or prune like finish. I’m not an expert of this style. (and drink only once in awhile) however , it seems to be nice example. More on the Flemish side which I like.
