3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz bottle. Up front sourness followed by a orange, cherry aroma and some vinous qualities. Clear burgundy in color with a small off white head. Aggressive up front sourness, rounded with hint of sour cherries, sherry like, somewhat acidic and a little bitter orange peel. A little astringent for my tastes and the sweetness lingers on the back of the throat. Pretty good job of playing the sweet and sour contrast but seems a little rough around the edges. The aggressive sourness makes it a little one dimensional IMHO.

Very good surprise. It taste like nothing I ever taste before. Very acid, fruity, caramel... It is something you need to discover.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Little white head, mostly diminishing. Color is a rich clear copper.
Aroma: Good intensity, vinegar notes mainly, with notes of caramel and a hint of spice.
Taste: Intense. Opens with a sherry like sweetness, then the sourness kicks in, spicing things up and adding a mineral note. Good body, with a short finish that leaves only a faint and lingering sweetness in the mouth. The sweetness is dominant in the end, though overall balanced by the acidity. Good carbonation. Nice.

Bottle on 6/14/2013. Sweet. Oaky. Sour. Delicious. One of my favorites. Just the right balance of everything so nothing overpowers anything else.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Deep amber in colour but very sweet in taste. Thick and intense. I paired this beer with cold radish kimchi and it was magical. The deep cherry flavour mixed well with the slight kick of the kimchi... creating a strange (but good) mix of thick sweet and spicy flavours. Saved a little for after dinner and continued to enjoy. Best enjoyed slowly.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. This beer replaced another beer on-tap while I was at Melt Bar & Grilled in Lakewood, OH. Bartender offered me a sample & I couldn’t help but order a full pour.
Small head. Dark red pour. Sweet dark fruit and black cherry aroma. Tart, mature barrel aged cherry flavor with enough sweetness for your mouth not to pucker. I think this beer could convince non-beer drinkers that beer can also have similar qualities to a nice, aged port. What a great way to finish off a night of good beer.
