4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
appearance: dark reddish brown with a nice compact tiny bubly head with good retention.
Aroma: Sour apples and tanine.
Taste: Starts out with sour apples and cherries, maybe even grapes, nice woody finish Suprisingly rolling it arround in the mouth shows some actuall sweetness and some good complexity. Finish is dry. Very wine like. The aftertaste is cherries with wood, quite nice.
Thin mouthfeel, slighttly overcarbonated.
While this is quite good at the current time, it makes me wonder how it develops over time.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Snifter. Deep reddish brown pour with a serious white fluffy head. Aroma of cherries, wine cask, tart fruits, and spice. The taste was more mild than I expected with semi-tart cherries, slight sweetness, a light malt and hop base, and some spice. Very light body, small carbonation. Finish is tart cherries as well. Good beer but it could be better. Wish it was more tart.
