4.21/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

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 -1.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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!
