0,75l from bottle at the Brewery. Deep red color, small white head. Smells cherries, marzipan, sour cherries, spices, light cinnamon. Lovely smell. Full body, soft carbonation. Tastes of cherries, marzipan, earthy, nutty, bit acidic, peppery, spices. Finishes dry and light to medium sour with notes of cherries, earthy and peppery notes. Not as good as other lpks I had, tad acidic, probably a bit too young

’08 vintage bottle thanks to Destructo. Ruby red pour with a pinkish head. Raspberry, vanilla, and oak aromas. Tart cherry, sour raspberry, semi-acidic with light funk, and oaky notes.
Deep clear red with a small white head. Nice cherry notes and a bit of pit. Soured cherry, light pit and a nice finish. Solid for the age.
