4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
2013 bottle so about 3 years old now. Pretty reddish beer with no head or lacing. Nose is very muted cherry and oak. Taste is tart cherry flesh, oak, earthy cherry pits, light yogurt, barrel spice. Great balance. Wish the nose had more oomph but this is a great beer. Liquid cherry pie. Better overall than CS Mama Bears.

Pours reddish and bright with a small white head. The aroma has cherries, pepper, vanilla and some sourness. It has a medium crisp body with a minor amount of spritzy carbonation. The flavor starts with tartness, cherries, citrus and vinegar sourness along with some minor oak. the finish is clean and refreshing for an 8.5% beer. Nice sour.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A short, slowly fading, frothy white head falls to a solid ring over a clear, vibrant tangerine body displaying several streamers of very fine carbonation, solid falling arcs and dots of lacing on each sip
A kaleidoscope of seamlessly integrated tropical fruit, melon, stone fruit, and white wine complexities embossed by a mildly creamy funk over strong acidity and sourness on a cohesive, softly carbonated, creamy-slick medium body offering a solid coating of acid and cutting dryness leading to residuals of the previously mentioned components... very enjoyable

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy crimson. A wispy pink head appears after some vigorous pouring but fades away quickly. The bouquet is a blend of balsamic and white vinegar, soft cherry and caramel, like cherry cola. There’s a little more cola in the flavor, too, with brown sugar and caramel. Balsamic vinegar settles in after that, bringing with it tart/sweet cherries. Not too complex, but good. Carbonation is a little low for style. Medium-light body. Acidity is nice.
