750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears lightly pink like coolaid or other juice of sorts. A white fizzy cap rests atop with big patchy lace hanging on the glass. A swirl revives a finger to the surface.

The aroma includes plenty of cherry. It smells earthen and yeasty with sulfur. The cherry aspect is pitted and earthen with a spice thats is borderline overripe to rotten but in a good way. As it warms up it gets phenolic and has a light amount of funky plastic.

The taste is tart cherry like pie filling. Somewhat earthen and includes that natural cherry pit character and is lightly medicinal. The aftertaste has some cinnamon in the finish. It is mildly herbal and grassy.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is quite fruity and interesting. Very easy drinking with no alcohol inclusion to be found anywhere which solidifies that whole fruit juice theme that it opens with.

Note: there seems to be some bottle variation with this guy. At the release, there was an unmistable cinnamon character that was very pleasant and unexpected both in the nose and flavor. It seemed to be a spiciness picked up from the barrel aging but it was borderline dominating in the profile. I hardly picked up on that attribute in this bottle but instead some phenolics in it's place. It will be interesting to see where this brew heads with age. Admittedly, I liked this a lot more at release time but my review scores are based on a bottle here and now.

Pour is clear cherry red with a right white head. Nose is woody and dusty with a nice fleshy cherry note and a bit of lacto. Taste is fairly sour, meaty body with balanced carb. Cherries are very fleshy and ripe, more lacto. Dusty flavors are more subdued, cherries are rather bright and sourness is strong but pleasant.

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!
