3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Moosejaw brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours a clear reddish copper brown colored brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet Door County cherries, roasted caramel malt, floral hops and a touch of apple. Taste is fruity, caramel malt, a hint of chocolate, candi fruit and a touch of yeast. Finish has a low bitterness, plenty of lactose with a sweet cherry and caramel malt aftertaste. Not as tart as the 2009 version and missing the stollen bread flavor that I really enjoyed last year but definitely a solid cherry/fruit ale.
