12oz, 02/08/13
Riedel tulip

A: Almost IPA like. Deep orange amber color. Half finger of tight bubbled bright white head. Over carbonated. Cap nearly flew off. Foam over. Lots of tight tiny bubbles. Prickly.

S: Lots of wine vinous notes. Wood like oak notes. Not getting a lot if cherries on the nose initially, but then they started to come up a bit.

T: Not a lot of cherry. Good barrel: oak and roundness. Definitely wine like. There is some good tartness.

M: Big medium.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange amber with a big head. Lots of wisps and a thick collar.

Smell - Cherries and some barrel funk. Some wine barrel. Caramel.

Taste - Lots of cherries blended into the pale malt. Not a ton of depth to it. Cherries and some white wine. A touch of acidity.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Medium to light body.

Overall - I don't get any old ale from this. Just cherries and wine barrel.
