3.88/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

2012 bottle, poured into a teku.

Pour: Deep burgundy that is a little hazy. Nice two finger tan head, that is slow to recede and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell:Light cherries, some caramel, and a minuscule funk. Not really anything besides that going on here.

Taste: Follows the nose, with some cherries and a pretty sizable caramel sweetness. Some tart pear might slip in there too, but just a little.

Mouthfeel: A big disappointment on the sour aspects. Just a light tartness. Nice carbonation, but nothing to really write home about. Light to medium bodied

Overall: A pretty big disappointment given the price tag and reviews. I won't be getting this again.

Serving type: bottle
