Acquired at Winooski Beverage Warehouse in mid-2013. Enjoyed a full pour at cellar temp (50F)A – Very little carbonation poured, almost flat honestly in mouthfeel as well. It’s a burnt ruby red with a lot of black floaties even on a delicate pour.

S – Nose has a lot of lactic acid, that rodenbach cherry pie and oak aroma and quite a bit of sweetness.

T – It’s a very nice beer. The sour is not overwhelming at all, very light in fact and doesn’t really stick around. you can a woody note mid way through with caramel and prune juice the finish is rum booziness and more sweetness.

M – Hard to get any carbonation from this at all…it’s pretty much a flat beer but oddly that doesn’t detract at all from how nice it is…would have been better with carbonation though.

O – By the nose, I thought this was going to be a sour bomb. It’s not and I enjoyed sipping it on a cold evening up here in the woods.
