2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours a hazed dark amber color with essentially no head.
S: Sour booze which certainly indicates the bourbon barrel. There is a mild acetone note but plentiful vinegar. A little bit of maple and caramel with just a hint of vanilla. It’s slightly vinous along with some cherries.
T: Quite heavy on the vinegar and acetone. There is a mild sweetness of caramel and maple. Definitely some cherries giving it sweetness. A heavy dose of oak and noticeable booze as well.
M: Medium bodied with a low carbonation.
O: Didn’t really like this or the Pinot/Bourbon blend.
