750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Big white head on a deep orange and hazy body. Medium collar.

Smell - Stone fruit. Lots of white wine. Some cherry.

Taste - Stone fruit again. Reminds of Cascade Vlad a lot. Faintly cherry tartness. Oak and white wine lingers.

Mouthfeel - Quite sour. Builds into the finish and gets a tad vinegary. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not as dynamic as Darksynth. Pretty good, though.

A-Semi cloudy pinkish-orange. One finger head.

S-Good deal of funk, some tartness. Oak is there. nice cherries and other fruits.

T-Very funky, oak, sour, then nice fruity notes. The 10% of cherries really comes through nicely.

M-Lighter, semi crisp finish and semi dry as well.

O-Better than DarkSynth, gotta love the pubic sales.
