AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
A – No cork pop, actually no head unless I pour very vigorously. Appearance, dark reddish brown. Doesn’t look very appealing on appearance alone.
S – I get far more cherry aroma than raspberry. No tart or sour aroma at all. Some musty mold, oak, cheese and sweet cherry juice.
T – There’s a tart intensity on the sides of my mouth. Finish is just cherry juice with funk. At first, I do get a little bit of tart taste, more like a fruit salad than beer. I think all of the sour comes from raspberry. Copper, metal, tin taste in the middle to finish.
M – non existent mouthfeel. Thin, oily.
O – Unfortunately, I’m very unimpressed by this beer. Will wait a few years to try the other bottle.
