Possibly clouded auburn colored beer. Head is a good sized pile of kahki colored tight foam which fades to a sheet and a ring. Sweet and tart cherries, light wood musk, interesting, unique floral, strawberries and cream, and a variety of other subtle aroma nuances. Taste is loaded with tart, acidic cherries, smooth woodiness, all sorts of fermented fruits, packed into a light fluid body. Carbonation is softly blended throughout. Pitted fruits and berries, all soaked in cherry juice and tangy. Mouthfeel is fantastically smooth.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky reddish brown. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Smells equally sweet as sour. Deep caramel and brown sugar. Vanilla. Red wine. Oak.

Taste - Tart up front. Cherry-like tartness and sweetness. Vanilla. Oak. Caramel sweetness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation and medium body. Maybe even medium heavy.

Overall - More sour than sweet, but it's still pretty sweet. I'd prefer a little less sugar, but it's still very nice.
