Drank this on 4th of July, prior to the awesome Weidman/Silva parlay card I won! Pours a unique color. Pink, rose etc. . . thin head on it, dissipates very quickly.
Aroma was complex, cherry, berry, apricot, bourbon. Cherry and bourbon most prominent. Lactic tartness as always, all over this one.
Taste throws in some oak, coconut, vanilla on top of the aforementioned aromas that are tasted as well. Continues to develop in complexity and intracacies throughout. The quad base is obliterated. Drinks nowhere near as powerful as it indicates on the label. A chocolate undercurrent develops, probably from the Heaven Hill barrels. It is mildly sour, nowhere near most of their beers, even their other bourbon barrel sours like Vlad and Bourbonic seem to have a little more going for them in the straight up sour department.
A very good beer. Worth $30? Once, yeah. But I won't be stocking up on this one when there are just as good (if not better) options from the same brewery for only $20.

Another goodie thanks to Francois.
Light small creamy head, semi clear cherry red color.
Nose is pure cherry, balotin cherry, light sour, sweet malt, light tannic skin, light tart fruit
Taste sweet candy cherries, brown sugar like, a bit acidic and a bite, balotin cherries, candy flavours, caramel, light toasty, slight flemmy. The candy sweetness brings a warming booze that cuts through the tart cherries, almost pie like.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, tart acidic bite, little flemmy, light fizzy carb.
