Reviewed side by side by side, 3-98, 6-99, 8-02, all corked and caged. (special thanks to Nero Fiddled). Pours a murky, reddish brown with an absolutely perfect head. You can smell the carbonation in the aroma! Cherry's abound in the first sip, sweet yet somewhat sour. High carbonation, yet creamy in the mouthfeel. Short, dry finish, yet again with a lingering, somewhat tangy edge. Unbelievable. Now, of course the August of 2000 was the freshest, but my personal favorite; the March of 1998. It showed signs of aging, less carbonation, hardly any lasting lace, but the short, tangy, slight sour finish worked for me. Next mission, cellar some blue.
