4.35/5  rDev +4.8%

Poured into a Perennial snifter from a 750ml bottle.
Bottled: 12/2013

An agressive pour yields a very nice traditional brownish color with some nice dark ruby red hues. Nice earth and mahogany chocolate tones are present. There is a nice yet fleeting half inch head that quickly recedes down to some thin film and ring around the glass.

Aroma is amazing and quite traditional. Musty notes of wood and barrel, notes of farmhouse and slight hay notes. These are then enveloped in a milder balsamic vinaigrette blanket. This aroma is then followed by superb notes of cherries. Cherry tartness rules but is underlain by some nice cherry jam sweetness that is faint. Mild grainy and earthy notes of pie crust that bring the notes of cherry pie to mind. Nice vinous notes with some good tannins and some amazing dry oaky notes as well as some soured grape notes. Quite complex.

The flavor is incredible. Such a well crafted brew. Starts off with tight and noticeable notes of balsamic vinegar tartness; this tartness is quickly followed by some tartness imparted by the cherries. Oh, the cherries, what and amazing facet of this brew.They are tart and puckering but at the same time have a sugary jam quality to them that balances out the tartness that could potentially overwhelm this brew. There are some nice buttery pie crust notes that are perceived as well. Potentially from the yeast notes and the grains. Soo delicious. There are some nice dry vinous notes that work so well with the tartness and lend the beer some more MILD dark fruit sweetness as well as some dryness. The body is perfectly light and dry with lower levels of carbonation that let the flavors shine through. Solid brew in my book.

750ml brown bottle with a freshness date.

Deep brown color, opaque with a off white lacing on top. Aromas of vinous wood, faint vanilla, tart cherries, mint, toasted bread, yeast and a hint of alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel, mild tartness, wood tannin, hint of wine, pungent cherries, cake batter, kiss of alcohol, modest hopping. Finishes with a long lingering tartness with wood and fruit and lands dry.

Seriously ... is beer is amazing, the balance of wood to tartness and the actual foundation of this beer is spot on. Each sip make me want to go back for the rest ... hard to share this bottle. ;-)

Hunt this beer down.

If this beer had an inspiration/spirit animal, I'd guess Rodenbach Alexander.

Dark burnished reddish amber, glistens in the light. Nice clarity, compact layer of tan tan foam that recedes to a ring after a couple minutes.

Distinct cherry aroma, saddle leather, oak, nice depth to it, definitely spent some time in a barrel.

Very tart and cherry forward, verging on sour. Drying oak in the finish, sour cherries linger long in the aftertaste. Easy to drink with a very light acetic presence that's perfectly acceptable for the style. Sour cherry for days. If you like La Folie, this is even more interesting.

Deep tawny pour with fine head that dissipates to fine lacing around edge of glass.. Lots of oak and sweet/sour cherries on the nose. Taste is perfect combination of sweet oaky flavors and sour tartness. Really a nice long finish as well. Doesn't overwhelm with sour and can really tell the cherries are there. Really enjoyed this much more than I expected too. Would highly recommend.
