3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle generously shared by the Wedge at the RBWG grand tasting. Very sour kriek style ale. Sour notes blended quite nicely. Slight nail polish presence that doesn’t go overboard. Some nice raspberry and lemon notes even it out nicely.

Wow, this is the real deal. Nice work from EtF! Richly malty with a light caramel, sharply sour but balanced with the sweet and funk. A harbinger of great things.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks to Lushawn’s Dad. Amber pour without much in the way of head. Some red wine, grape skin, and oak. There is a ton of vinegar and lemon juice. The flavor is brutally sour and acidic. Quite acetic, too. Red wine vinegar, some lemon juice, and lots of grape. Oak, cherry skin, and green apple. Too much.
