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!

750 mL bottle. Looks like apple juice with a bit of redness. Smell has a nice cherry aroma. Lots of vanilla. Sweet cherry. Mild acidity. Taste is a very nice cherry. Lightly sweet. Some sweetness. Finish has a strong sour bite, but it's never too strong. Medium body. Delicious, even with the intense finish.

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.
