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

L: Looks dark brown and murky with a light tan foam. Low foam, but what is there is sticky and thick.

S: Smells sweet of raspberry and strawberry. Slight scent of waterlogged oak.

T: Starts of rich and woody with a deep black soil earthiness. Mild tanginess with a balsamic vinegar. Fades fast into a sweet fruitiness of, again, strawberry an raspberry.

F: Thick and syrupy. Sweetness starts off okay but builds to a candy texture.

O: Tasty but too much sweet. Still good and enjoyable, but not the best of its style.

Funkier and not as sweet as Duchesse. Pours a brown edged ruby with one finger thick tan colored head. Dense half inch cap remains. Smell: green apple, date bread, barnyard funk, sour peach, with herbal and vanilla-ish oaky notes. Taste: dried cherries and stone fruit with brown sugar note, then growing acid with grape and peach skin, finishing with green apple candy and oak contributions. Light-medium bodied, relaxed carbonation well suited to the experience. Best by 2/2015. Excellent!
