3.25/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I'm not sure how sad it is, but beer teaches me more about the world than just about any other source. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset ruby-amber topped by over a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises medicinal cherry dust (which also kinda borders on plum at times...), Belgian candi sugar, light clove, banana, perfume-y flowers, and a smattering of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a touch of coffee in the background and some lightly-toasted biscuit throughout. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda grainy feel. Overall, I don't feel the cascara really works all that well here, as it seemed to go sideways. Had that strange character not been there, ths probably could've been pretty nice, but c'est la vie, I s'pose.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Found a date on the side that says: "Best enjoyed by August 2014." Now when this actually came out, I'm unsure of, however, I would say there are at least 10 bombers of this stuff sitting at the Breeze In, Juneau location that just showed up last week.

Anyways, I poured this into a chalice.

A: a rustic brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that died within a half minute. Some lacing ends up trying to stick to the sides.

S: tart cherry with a slight coffee-ness trying to come through but honestly kind of comes through in an "ashy" sort of way - hmmmm...

T: some tart cherry and some other dark fruits try to balance the coffee and ash; aftertaste is somewhat a bland yet kind of tart cherry; dry ashy and somewhat coffee finish

M: she sits about a medium on the mouth and tongue, not really sessionable - though it seems like this one tries to be; carbonation runs fairly smooth

O: I say this is a decent quad, because I have become more engaged in this style within the past year, I think I can honestly say that this is a mostly ok quad that I don't think I'd have at my Easter meal.
