Had this one in a snifter at The Sharp Edge in Crafton, PA. Dark brownish-copper body with a medium-sized head. The head left a small ammount of lacing, which died quick.
The smell was largely alcoholic, but had touches of candy sugar and sour fruits, and a fine oak touch, which reminded me of the Russian River Temptation.
The taste immediately hits you as sour fruits, oak, tannins ,mild citrus, and alcohol. Yeast and mild hops finish out a pretty complex taste. Overall the taste was very interesting but not as balanced as I would have liked.
I think one of these is enough; not that there's a high ABV but the overwhelming tastes of the sour fruits and alcohol, combined with a puckering dry mouthfeel makes this a one a night beer.
Serving type: on-tap
