2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of jale. Served in a mini snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown-copper color with a good white head with staying power. A bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some cherry and a bit of cinnamon. The flavor is really quite plain and doesn’t bring much of the named components. Dry finish after a light body. Slightly cidery. Odd.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a clear light amber with a light brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of cinnamon and cranberries with a hint of cherry and other spices. Flavor began with cranberries and was joined by cinnamon and cherries. Wasn’t really a fan of the cranberry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
this is not the wheat version, so i created a new rate for this one. bottle, labeled as such. clear, ruby-colored pour with small white head. aroma of sweet cherry, tart cranberry skin, a slight hint of cinnamon, and a touch of grape. flavor of the same, with a major emphasis on the cherry. reminds me of a cinnamon infused Founders Cerise..however, there is just a touch of tartness in the finish to emphasize the cranberry. this is some really good stuff
