On tap at fruit beer fest. Raspberry/courant jam flavors with light cinnamon and spicyness. Not bad even though I expected a bit more.

Dark in color, hazy with a thin head. Big barrel and light currant flavor and aroma. Very interesting brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Portland Fruit Beer Fest... Poured reddish-brown with no head. Vinous tones meshed with barley and other dark fruits, cherries, grapes, currants, etc. Some acidity towards the finish as the flavors faded out, this created awkwardness. Barrel characters, toasted grains and sweetness. Not horrible, but I wasn’t totally into my whole pour.
