look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Light purple body. Small white head. Thin collar and some wisps on the surface.

Smell - Lightly fruity and lightly acidic. Mildly oaky. Not a really intense aroma.

Taste - Decent berry flavor. A little musty. Oaky and pleasantly sour.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Medium light body.

Overall - Well, it's a good beer, but didn't blow me away.

Bottle: Poured a deep reddish color ale with a large pink color head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet cherry notes is very pleasant with some tart notes easily noticeable. Taste is a great mix between some tart notes with some sweet cherry notes light oak and some vinous notes also apparent. Body is quite full for the style with good amount of carbonation. A nice balance to avoid too much acidity which ends up in a great complex but easily drinkable beer.

Shared at a 10K review beer tasting; drank from a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter.
Thanks to pushkinwow for the bottle!

Pors a nice rosey color, clear with lots of head and lacing. The nose is fantastic, a big cherry aroma, tart, acidic with some sweet doughy malt. On the palate, it is much drier, with lots of tart cherries, raspberries and lactic acid. Congrats on 10K Luc!
