3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Haand Festival 2014. It’s an unclear, orange-brown beer with a small, off-white head. It’s lightly funky on the nose, with caramel maltyness and a hint of balsamic vinegar. It’s dry and tart on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level, and flavors of caramel malts in the back, with some dried fruit notes, balsamic vinegar and a good funky touch. Lasting finish with a light vinegar sourness. An easy drinkable and tasteful beer that is far from as frightening as the name and bottle design might lead you to think. 140524

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from footbalm. Thanks Eric! It pours a dark ruby, black cherry color with a thin khaki head. The aroma jumps out as a bit acetic with some tart and sweet cherries, hints of diluted molasses, a little leather, vanilla and wood. The flavor has strong sweet cherries and a pretty good amount of spicy acetic acid and balsamic vinegar. The sweet cherry flavors balance it up front, but it does kinda burn on the way down a little. There’s hints of woody, vinous notes of spoiled wine and vanilla in the finish. Caramel comes through stronger as it warms, but this is still an acid forward sour. A decent beer and fun to drink.
