4.68/5  rDev +26.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: light copper in color with great clarity. Head is minimal, as well as lacing.

S: granny smith apples and bing cherries create a tangy sweet bouquet.

T: semi sweet, semi sour, 100% delicious. Cherries take over, and join with vanilla and orange zest.

M: semi-full body, with a slight creaminess.

D: I feel that this is closely related to a flanders red ale. I would prefer this over duchess any day!

Serving type: on-tap

Alright, let's see what two years did here...

Pours a bubbly clear copper with a vigorous initial tow fingers of thick, meringue style foam that falls to a solid quilt of the same. Smells pretty simple: some peppercorn, light malts, some hints of brett (sweet, milky and funky) with just a slight floral note. Nice fruity flavor up front lends some lemon and pineapple juice with woody malt and a hint of tartness in the finish. Medium on light syrup with liberal, but quick dissipating carb and an off dry finish. Tasty beer, but nothing special.

Serving type: bottle
