2010 vintage courtesy of Thirstybird. 750ml bottle served in a tulip. Pours a dull mahogany hue with a two inch, tight, pink tinged head. Copious tiny bubbles adhere to the bowl of the glass below the cap. Amazing nose reminiscent of a Flanders Oud bruin - hints of oak, cherries, lactose and cinnamon, as well as a suggestion of leather. Taste consistent with nose; however, a little more muted than suggested by the aromas. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively carbonation and a kiss of astringency. All and all, this beer has held up spectacularly. Very pleasant and drinkable with a modest complexity.

Appearance - The beer poured a deep auburn red color with a white head.

Smell - The nose was rich with spicy cherry and light oak.

Taste - Rich tart cherry is at the front with a Rolaids inducing level of acidity. As the cherries fade, the oak becomes more present. Tart cherry skin lingers on the roof of the mouth.

Mouthfeel - There was some tomato juice-like thickness here after the carbonation was diffused.

Overall - This was a little too acidic for me, but I still enjoyed it.

A fine, creamy beige, one-inch froth lasts a few minutes, leaving no lace on a teku glass above a hazy garnet beer.

Fruity tartness dominates the cherry, while oak and vanilla play minor roles. Cough syrup is faintly detectible.

The flavor is powerfully tart with lots of oak and cherry. Sweetness is equally strong. A modest finish hardly touches the acidity.

This one has a medium to light body with high carbonation and a satin, dry texture. The alcohol is high, especially in the finish.

This would make a nice morning beer, or it could be served as an aperitif. The color and tartness match Thanksgiving cranberries.
