On tap at Swiftwater Brewing in Rochester, NY.

Pours a reddish rosy amber color, with a very small head, and essentially no lacing.

Smells really fruity and nice, some peach, raisin, and stone fruit, and some slight alcohol aromas stinging the nostrils.

This is probably the best thing they've put out so far. The fruity flavors they pulled out of this one are really nice, candied peach, raisin, other dark fruits, stone fruit, and candi sugar. It's just really nice to drink.

This is medium bodied, with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel, and a lower level of carbonation.

Really nice stuff here.

A solid beer with soft of malt and fruit. Little light on the Abv for me to be a old ale. Think this has great potential to be a base for some other beers. Maybe one with plums!
