500 ml bottle cortesy oif adneilson (thanks Aaron!) poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bourbon, sour cherries, oak, vanilla and light funk. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of sour cherries, bourbon, oak, vanilla and light horseblanket funk with a smooth dry lightly tart lingering funky cherry finish. Glad I got to try this one!

deyholla (12676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear red amber with a light brown head that dissipated quickly. Aroma had a nice sour cherry note with a hint of bourbon. Flavor was similar except the sour cherries don’t really mesh as well with bourbon note and ends up a bit awkward in my opinion.
