Pours a clear strawberry blonde with about two fingers of head. Head retention is good,and on break there is a nice cap and collar. Good lacing.

Smell is quite impressive. Cherry, raspberry and apricot come to mind. And then there is the nice barrel aroma balancing things out across the spectrum.

Tart as all get out, but you get some quad aspects, fruits, and that barrel stays throughout. Definitely the cherry is the strong fruit.

Feel is lighter weight, high carbonation,puckering and dry. A very nice feel to this one.

I would drink this one slow to avoid a pucker overload. A lovely beer that I would happily have again.

Bottle: Poured a blonde color ale with a large pure white foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of acidic notes with light barrel-aged notes with some subtle candi sugar notes also perceptible. Taste is also a mix of acidic notes with some light oak notes, some barrel-aged notes and candi sugar are also noticeable. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. More complex than other beers from this brewery but still too acid for my taste.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Red Session. Aroma has sweet pollen, floral honey and orchard fruits. Taste is sour, puckering, really dry, woody, acidic with some background fruit preserve sweetish notes.

On tap at Cinder. Raspberry smoothie cherry. Very tasty and smooth for a sour.

Tasting next to 10 year and 20 year Pappy Van Winkle. That's kind of not really fair.

Bottle. Poured out a clear, dark amber color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of black cherry, oak and malt. Great sour dark cherry flavor with a touch of vanilla and oak.
