look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 11.2oz standard pressure-cap bottle into a goblet in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- One-finger off-white head with large bubbles. It recedes quickly to a floating, thin head. Ruby, mahogany-colored body.

S- Oaken, slightly tart aroma. Barrel notes, brandy, raspberries and brett. On the fence between attractive and unattractive aroma.

T- Wooden flavor, rich dark fruits. Surprisingly sweet and semi-tart.

M- Richer body with a dry finish.

O- Nothing special here. Too bad, it deserved to be more complex.

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

A - Color is quite hazy brown with a 1/4 inch of head that sticks around for a bit.
S - Smell is rather sweet some sour cherry notes with some plums and raisins.
T - Slightly sour with the same dark fruit and cherry notes described. Maybe some buttery notes but it's not very distracting. Wanted a bit more sour but that's OK.
M - Light to medium very easy to drink.

Overall at 5 dollars a bottle it's not an everyday kind of beer but an exceptional dubbel pick it up!
