Bright clear red - amber beer. Tidy cream coloured head. An attractive beer! Mild vanilla wood nose. Slightly soft palate. Sweetish dried fruits but with cherry and strawberry. Mild licorice spice. All of this encased in a mild vanilla oak backdrop. Finishes semi dry. Best of the Cuvee series and another cracker from Southern Tier.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Bomber from Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet fruits. Med + body. It’s very fruity. Makes me think of grape. Then it goes on to ripe light stone fruit. There’s some slightly roasted caramel. There’s some woodiness. Heat is not an issue. Just slightly sweet; there’s an impression of bitter. It seems like amazingly fresh fruit. A few other things I can’t find words for are in the mix. Excellent.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Draft… Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet consists of raw, wet, white oak with hints of bourbon and caramel. Full-bodied and syrupy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is all about caramel, caramel and caramel with a drop of honey. Big time under-attenuated, but nice raw oak and alcoholic bitterness salvages the experience. Finishes sweet and caramely with a touch of woody bitterness.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle @ Armin’s house. Hazy reddish orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Dark fruity, light plastic, caramel, toffee, oaky aroma. Dark toffee, sugary caramel, light plastic, a bit oaky, toffee, light butterscotch, dark fruity flavor. Pretty strong but way easier to drink than cuvée two to me.
