This is an unusual looking beer. It pours a thick deep garnet red with a fluffy pink head. Lots of tart cherries, oaky, a little acidic, funk and a touch of vanilla. Crisp with a dry finish.

oh my goodness this is good! like nothing else ive had. its blood red and thick in texture. there is a pretty active red head on top too. the beer is so dense and dark red, never seen one quite this ruby deep and quite intimidating. looks like cherry syrup. the nose is more red wine than anything else. tart and tannic, some lactic acidity too. the fruit is as big as ive ever seen cherries in a beer. in fact, this is ten times more cherry heavy than even the original spontancherry. the cherries are red and ripe and just bursting through the beer, certainly at the expense of any grain or hop character at all. its all fruit, with just a bit of pucker. more juicy than beery, but in a good way. carbonation is really uplifting in a real thick brew, and the alcohol is barely detectable. just blown away how packed in the cherry flavor is, its truly incredible. the acidity cleans up the sweetness that would otherwise be there, and im left with a dry palate loaded with cherry aftertaste. i cant get past it, it transcends what i thought i knew about fruit beer, and is a must try for any fruit beer fan. its next level stuff no doubt.
