look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

appearance: rusty red/amber with a big fizzy pour and a light brown head that disappears after a few seconds of settling.

aroma: big nose of blackberries, cherries, oak, pierced by slight hints of molasses, apples and slightly zesty. very complex, very fruit forward, very very good

palate: light, crisp, very drinkable. only a little disappointing as its fairly flat considering how fizzy it was at the pour

taste: huge fruit forward flavors of cherry, blackberry, apples, raspberries, hints of the oak barrels with a nice tarty backbone. if it was more sour forward, this would be amazing, but as is its still very good

overall: for a shelf beer at $12 a bottle, this is a fantastic option for anytime. very fruit forward, so you have to like fruity beers, but this one isnt too sweet or overpowering. if it had a bit more oakiness and more sour/tart to it, it could be a top shelf flanders. but its still a great beer and even greater considering it sits on shelves. if you are in need of a sour power day, and dont want to raid the cellar, look no further
