4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled (2014 vintage)@HBF2015. Rubyish brown colour with a mediumsized off-white head, that leaves good lace. Aroma is nicely caramel, some sour wood, mild vinegar, cherries, a bit floral notes as well as some quite acidic notes. Flavour is a mix of pretty much the same, leaving a very tart and nicely dry palate afterwards. Lovely dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at HopCat in Indy. Looks decent; undercarbonated though. A fairly transparent caramel with thin eggshell lacing. Smells lactic and acidic with notes of vinegar, oak, and mild cherry. Tastes like it smells with a tart medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but unbalanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red to brown body that is clear (first glass) or cloudy (second glass). Tiny, frothy, off-white head that disappears almost completely in a very short time. Sweet and sour and rather strong aroma of tart red berries and caramel. Moderate flavour of tart red berries and lemon, with caramel in the back. Light sweet taste and a moderate acidity. Quite long finish. Crisp mouthfeel, light body, dry and with a moderate carbonation.
