4.3/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Dark, murky ruby brown. Pours a nice creamy, smooth, off-white to slightly tan head. Average retention leaving a faint lacing.
S - A little on the faint/weak side for my liking. Some tart raspberry along with other berry aromas. A bit of caramel malt. Oak and hints of vainilla. Nice aroma, but I could use more of it.
T - Amped up version of the nose. The barrel flavors are very nicely integrated. Slightly tart raspberry, strawberry, and the faintest hint of cherry. Some caramel malt. Not really sour, but slightly tart and acidic. Nice kick of vainilla, oak, and whiskey that provide more of a sweetness than a heat kick. These are present in the back throughout, but come out strongest on the finish.
M - Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Fairly smooth and creamy with a slightly spritzy feel on the finish.
D - Everything is nicely integrated and nothing is over the top. Smooth and easy to drink, especially for the style. The barrels provide great flavor without overpowering the beer. I had no problem finishing a pint of this.
Notes: Not overpowering tart or acidic and not sour at all, but there is a definite tang to this beer. I really like what the Templeton barrels added to this. It goes down very smooth and easy. One of the best beers from Peace Tree.

On tap. Poured into a large wine glass.
Body is very red and cloudy. Head is white and not over whelming.
Nose is fruity with some yeast
Taste was pleasantly tart. Sweet cherries and some yeast. Very easy to drink and they do not overdo the tartness. I didn't get much of the whiskey barrel taste.
Carbonation was not as bubbly as I first thought. I would say this may be my new favorite from PT. It had less of their trademark yeast taste which they used in everything and grew tired of.
