4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by craytonic. Thanks Matt.
The beer is brown to ruby hued with an off white head that leaves sparse lacing in its wake. The aroma offers fruit, particularly cherries, oak, and a healthy dose of booze. Powerful flavor, with a strong showing from both the booze and fruit. Plenty of tartness and a bold acetic finish. Impressive. This exceeded my expectations. Would be very happy to try this one again. Recommended.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Leighton at THE (fruit) sour tasting. It pours deep red with a small-medium beige head. The nose is raspberry yoghurt, tangy berry, oak, vanilla and light sourness. The taste is earth, tart red fruit, berry, raisin, red grapefruit, tangy, vinous, light spice, vinegar and sherbet with a sweet-sour finish. Fairly one-dimensional. Not bad.
