A 2015 bottle

It is a beautiful mahogany red. Semi transparent with a beige head that remains as a thick ring.

It smells malty and semi sour with some sweet berry (raspberry).

I have the flavor rated a little lower for 2 reasons. It is too sweet, and there is an out of place bitterness on the back end that reminds me of an American Barleywine. Otherwise, there is a bunch of raspberry and blackberry flavor on top of an almost Flanders like tart sourness and malty base.

This is exceptionally drinkable considering the abv and the rich sweetness. It has a little bit of body to it and carbonation is on the lower side so it is a little more port wine like.

I can accept the sweet dessert wine like aspect if the bitterness that seems to clash/stand out rather than balance it was gone. Enjoyable and unique

At Kuhnhenn XV.

Well, that was outstanding ... unexpectedly one of my favorites from the event. 15%, but it goes down so stupidly easy. Almost mead-like, but still very much a beer... sweet, decadent, loaded with fruit. This is how a fruit beer should be. It's borderline a dessert wine, but again, a beer ... though it blurs the lines a bit. Not sure what else to say about this beer other than that I found it delicious and would really like to have it again. Yes, it's sweet, but come on... it's 15% and called Tenacious Cassis.

Bottled in 2007/187ml. Popped with a slight hiss but poured with no head. Full fruity nose (mild port-like) but slightly medicinal. Fruity, full taste, some heat, Nice clean finish for age. Very little oxidation.
