2.98/5 rDev -33.9%
2013 bottle poured at the Tipples Rare and Barrel Aged Beer Tasting on July 13, 2014. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a creamy white rim of head on top. Aroma is very funky barnyard, hay, dry dusty oak, and bandaids. Uh oh. Flavor follows with big time bandaid flavors--just like my first bad Fantome--some dry oakiness, and a bit of sour cherries in there. No evidence of raspberries whatsoever, unfortunately. Very dry body, medium plus carbonation, and light plus mouthfeel.
Well, this was awfully disappointing. I assume this was a bad bottle. They had 4 of them there, but I only got a pour from one. No way this is what this beer is supposed to taste like. I'll have to revisit this one again if I can ever find it.

Pours a deep, reddish purple like the color of cherries. An inch of pink infused cream colored head that holds pretty well. Head remains at the surface and a thick collar. Fair legs, and poor lacing. Aroma is a ton of cherry and an odd funk. Smells almost like cherry cough medicine. Taste is lightly tart, rich raspberry more than cherry flavor, and an oakiness. Medium body and high carbonation, with a fruit-like stickiness to the mouthfeel. Great beer, but the slight cough syrup-like quality is off putting in the aroma and flavor.
