Hanuta06 (335) - Washington, USA - APR 21, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Sound Brewery. Aroma: moderate apple aroma. Appearance: very small, light-brown, initial head that disappeared in seconds. Fully diminishing longevity and fair lacing. Hazy, dark-orange body. Taste: moderately sweet, cherry-like initial flavor, and moderately sour finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: good.

brenn79 (1545) - Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2013
22 oz. bottle- Pours very dark ruby red with a thin tan head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet, some hops. The taste is the same, light caramel malts and hops imparting a dryness in the finish. Body is medium to light and carbonation is somewhat high. This was good, not great, I actually liked that it was a lighter body, not so thick caramel malty, but nothing special here.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
650ml bomber bottle pours a deep amber color with finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate with some dark pitted fruits and light yeasty notes. Taste is chocolate malt and dark fruity sweetness with a mild hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation providing a pleasant sensation on the palate. A pretty nice brew for the style and recommended to sample.
