3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BBF 08. Wierd how they had 2 different names for a similar beer on 2 different days. They both did tast ea bit different though. Similar color of deep violet-red with an ok fizzy head. Aroma was a bit more real cherry with even more pit and almond character. Fruit tasted more real int he flavor as well, nto as medicinal and a bit more astringent which was fine since this also didnt have much acidity.

Sample @ BBF ’08, Boston. Pours a deep red with a pinkish head. Aroma is slight cherry and slight yeast/malt as well. Taste is the same, with a solid fruit characteristic throughout the beer. Not great, but not bad either.
