Pours a deep ruby with a short-lasting light tan head. A little soapy lacing is left behind. The aroma is dark fruit, slightly tart like fresh sour cherries. The taste, though, is underwhelming. A little bit of the tartness remains, but disconnected from any other flavor. There isn't much of the bourbon barrel aging process noticeable either, beyond a hint of wood towards the back of the tongue. It also has a little bit of fizzy quality to the body, despite not much carbonation. It could be, and should be, much better.

A- dark brown with a red tint, little visibility, cloudy, no head and no lacing

S-malt, apple, grape, brown sugar, doughy, chocolate

T- tons of fruits, cherry, sour apple, malty, toffee, roasted nuts, sangria character, all spice

M- medium body, little carbonation, surprisingly refreshing

O- unique Belgian style red very complex and enjoyable, slightly sweet. I like seeing Sam Adams do these out of the box small batches
