COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took a crisp, light-bodied cherry ale and hid it away in oak barrels that have held both bourbon and maple syrup. After a lengthy stint, it emerged a changed beer, blanketed in notes of warm vanilla and earthy sweetness. The wood proves itself the star of this beer, adding depth and taming the tart cherry while the maple imposes a velvety texture that lingers for not a moment too long.

Loads of cherry, a bit of wood in aroma, less of it on the tongue. Complex, very interesting beer.

Bottle, gift from Helsinki. BB 19.12.2017. Translucent orange-red with off-white head. Lovely mild cherry aroma mixed with sweet maple syrup and woody sweet bourbon notes. At times the bourbon is most dominant of the mix. Tastes fruity sweet, somewhat dry, but seems less BA-d as the aroma suggested. Fermented redcurrant notes. Somewhat sticky on the palate. Light and soft, easy-drinking, the 8% is barely noticeable. I really like it.

Znów foundersowy team słodyczka. Kolor brunatny, ciemny ale raczej klarowny. W aromacie słodko, wiśniowo, likierowo. Czuć też lekko beczkowe taniny i wanilię z burbona. W smaku dominuje słodycz. Są słodkie wiśnie w czekoladzie, słodkie wino, drewno, posmak waniliowy. Bardzo kompleksowe piwo, choć nieco zbyt słodkie. Brakuje uderzenia goryczki.

karpik (1342) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Great bourbon barrel notes in nose with vanilla and coconut followed by cherries, maple syrup and candies. Pours amber reddish with white head. Taste is sweet with cherry jam, candies, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut. Low bitter finish, soft to average carbo, medium body. Overall it smells amazing, however taste could be more on the tart cherry side. Still very good beer.

Pachnie beczkowo i zaskakująco mocno barliłajnowo: wanilia, pistacje, migdały, dalej również syrop klonowy i średnio dojrzałe wiśnie. Smak jest zaskakująco rześki. Są też pistacje i wanilia, ale dominuje świeża średnio dojrzała wiśnia. Bardzo ciekawe i smaczne

So freakishly weird brew. Super barrely in the aroma. Super sweet and cherry. Freak - but cool.
