3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good and different but not as good as the original. Aroma of cherries and hops. Dark golden color with a white head. This was from a firkin; however, the carbonation seemed good. The palate was smooth and creamy. This was a mellowed version of the beer. Hops came first and were immediately followed by flavors of cherry and strawberry with sweetness of the oak at the finish. Worth a try if you can find it.
