look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle. No bottle date but a number of 2402 on the bottle.
A - pours a spritzy red hued brownish-orange. Just a skimming of off white head appears and instantly disappears.
S - just a tad of sourness, but mainly cherry fruit. Smells like a chewy cherry Spree. Syrup. Slightly musty. Unusual - I dont know I ever smelled another beer like it.
T - Just a tad of sourness on the front end that melds into huge notes of maple syrup and cherries. Very interesting. Vanilla on the back end. Some barrel wood present throughout. A slightly unusual caramelly malty profile resides in the mid to late palate.
M - medium-light bodied. Barely any carbonation - drinks more like a still drink.
D - easy to drink. The fruit makes it drink almost like a melomel more than a beer.
Overall a very interesting I am enjoying. Fruit, vanilla and sour all meld together to form something unusual and enjoyable.

4.9/5 rDev +18.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Bottle pours a clear copperish amber, half finger of white head
smell is cranberry, cherry, apple, tartness, bready malt, yeast funk, citrus fruits,
Taste is well read the smell, Cranberry, apples, cherry, tart, sourness, yeasty character, bready backbone.
Mouthfeel is medium full with heavy carbonation that contributes to the fullness of the beer.
A amazing beer, never understood why this was not more sought after with all the craziness with Wild Sour Ale... I have been doing my best to keep my last couple bottles out of the case I had until Dan brewed it again.... God I hope that is soon, I also hope it sticks around longer then WSA.... It is better and I hope I am the only one who knows it!
