Thanks to schen9303 for the share! 750ml corked and caged bottle into Tired Hands stemware.
Pours a 1.5 finger foamy white head with poor retention. Beer is a stunning, clear orange-red. No lacing with thin legs. Not much going on but the color pushes this one past average.
Nose is tart raspberry and cherry. Hints of oak, vinegar, cobweb and band-aid balanced by a nice sweet and tart red fruit. Very aromatic. Excellent!
Opens crisp cherry and raspberry tartness. Oak, vinegar, yeasty funk, cobwebs, plastic and band-aid in the middle. More red fruit sweet and tartness in the end. Juicy as it finishes. Puckering fruit and wood aftertaste. Really lambic-like. Shockingly good.
Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down dry and puckering. Finishes dry and clean with a sticking, lingering, pucker aftertaste. Near Perfect.
Looks like Bullfrog is getting back to its roots and hitting those AWAs out of the ballpark again. This one's gonna be good for a while. Get it while its still floating our there!

Second time having this, finally reviewing since the first time was a very small pour (similar conclusions though)
A: Gorgeous pink hue...love this color in a beer
S: Wonderful yet subtle aroma..not cherries punching you in the face
T: Extremely drinkable due to the subtle fruit flavor balanced by a not overpowering sourness. By far my favorite beer with cherries!
M: Could stand to be a little less dry, but very drinkable
O: One of the best beers I've had in a while. Much better effort than Oud15 in my opinion, but that's a reflection of the type of beer I enjoy...and this is it. I dinged this a bit in the smell category because I prefer a more in your face nose, but overall I feel that it's harder to nail subtlety and it's achieved perfectly here. Love.this.beer.

Bottle shared by FBC24 - thanks Frank! ~5oz poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pours a light pink with minimal head. Probably could've been a little more aggressive on the pour, but the small amount of head I got dissipated pretty quickly.
S: Nice nose with lots of cherries and mild funk.
T: Delicate. It's not an in your face sour bomb with an overwhelming amount of fruit. It's a really nicely balanced sour with complimentary funk and very well integrated cherry flavor. It's not overly acidic either...it's just pleasant.
M: Medium carbonation, and very dry.
O: Really good effort from Bullfrog; I prefer this beer to Oud15 although they're vastly different. I think this beer is perfect right now, so if you have a bottle, don't hesitate to open it up.

4.49/5 rDev -1.8%
Bottle poured into a snifter.
Pour: Pours a hazy, bright reddish pick with a finger of frothy light pink head. Some nice lacing. J
Smell: Lots of bright cherry skins, some lemon pith, and even some seedy raspberry. A nice dose of funk as it warms.
Taste: Awesome. Lots of juicy cherry skin, and more of that seedy raspberry. Mildly funky and mildly sour. Finishes juicy, yet massively dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, and juicy with cherries. Finishes incredibly dry, just a tad more than I prefer.
Overall: I was beyond impressed with this beer. Bullfrog, well done!
