A: Murky brick brown. Not much of a head. Poured it into a wine glass.

S: Estery. Some cherries and tea.

T: Cherries, black tea, acidic fruit, half and half, raisins, yeast, and some oak. Not bad but the flavors aren't as sharp as I'd like them to be. I'm getting a bit of a watered down version of a really good beer.

M: Creamy and not much carb. Not heavy but buttery and light.

O: Not too impressed since I expected the taste to jump out more like the Grand Cru did. Still an excellent beer and worth buying if you can get it in the little singles like I did.

3.53/5  rDev -11.8%

Poured from a bottle into a small pilsner glass.

A: Dark brown with reds. Very pretty and deep color.

S: Smells of malty notes with hops and some yeast. A nice grape aroma.

T: Primarily a light malt body with a huge citrus and floral top. Prunes, grapes and raisin here. Spicy finish.

M: Smooth and crisp, not bitter and not boozy.

O: A fairly unique beer that is full of unique flavor. A bit too sour and sweet for me, but very different and I'm glad I tried it.
