Bottle at share. courtesy of Toby. Dark amber, ruby tinges. Fruity, jelly jar aroma. Taste is smooth, sweet, berries. Heat comes in late, but pretty gentle.

Serving: 12.7 Fl. Oz. bottle poured into a Founder's Backwoods Bastard snifter. 2017 edition from the Winter Solstice.

A: Pours a nice, clear, bright ruby red color. Basically no head or carbonation.

S: Huge, bright raspberry jam aroma. Like fresh raspberry puree. Very nice.

T: Huge raspberry up front, very sweet and sticky. The alcohol creeps up on you near the end giving it a slight metallic or medicinal quality, but this isn't necessarily bad, just boozy and rich.

M: Medium body, almost no carbonation. Quite boozy on the finish but not overwhelming.

O: I've only had this this beer one other time and it was in 2013. At that time, I didn't have much appreciation for this style and I sort of shrugged it off. However, now, this beer stands out and I enjoy it a lot. The fruit flavors are huge. It is very balanced in rich and tasty. It might be a tad boozy, and this gives it a slight medicinal quality. However, it is very drinkable, and is one of the better non-barrel-aged beers from Kuhnhenn.

Recommendation: Might be a tough find, but well worth the effort to try a very unique beer in a style we rarely ever see anymore.

This pours a kind of brass hue but fills to a dark garnet with a slight copper edge and a minimal tan fizz dying to a thin film and thick collar.

Smell is toasted bread with raspberry and cherry hard candies.

Taste is undeniably medicinal, of the cherry variety. It has a very strong tang and tingle--while not hot, the strength is apparent, kind of like ginger ale. A touch of cobbler runs under the sharp, medicinal red fruit.

Feel is crisp and sticky, again kind of like ginger ale, with that familiar sting.

Major disappointment.

2014 Vintage. Really enjoyed this as it was a change of pace. Like a strong ale meets fruit beer. Boozy yet not hot. Strong dark malty raspberry. I bet this continues to age well. Have a 16 I might sit on for a while and revisit this.
