Bought this on clearance for $1. Thinking it is pretty old. Poured dark like a Coke. Aroma is slightly boozy with some apple fruitiness. Mild flavor. It has a sharp bite on the tip of the tongue, followed by some apple flavors. Actually taste pretty good. Not sure what it would taste fresh, but not bad old.

Deliciously fruity

Almost like a fruit soda pop. Smell like sweet malts taste like esters from the yeast. The hop presence for me was non existent. There is a slight acidic twang. Very enjoyable and very different from what I expected. The beer is complex and highly drinkable.

Pours a very dark but mostly clear dark red/plum color, with thin khaki colored head, rings of lace halfway down the glass. Smell: cherry, balsamic reduction, herbal and vanilla oak, sweet. Taste: caramel, cherry, blackberry, tart grape, herbal and mildly acetic. Finish is sweet with mild vanilla and tannic flavors.

New style for me, wasn't prepared, so surprised a bit. Have to taste it once more.
