AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
S – Aroma is distinctly cherry. Really good cherry presence with a bit of wine tannins and oak.
T – The taste culmination is very much a wine barrel aged saison, funkified with cherries added and, in its simplest form, that’s exactly what this is. You get a grape laste with lemon, oak, red wine, a little bit of peach and wild yeast and the cherry presence starts strong and lingers.
M – Thin mouthfeel, might carbonate more with time.
O – First notes when thinking of batch 1 and 2 is that this must have far less cherries or be a larger batch than the 1st. Looking at my photos, for sure not as much cherry. Also, the carbonation is not as thick or filling. This is also a slightly more sour beer than batch 1. I like this a lot. I think the 1st batch ruined me. Still, a fantastic beer. Unfortunately, I’d take standard Flora any day.
