A-Pours a dark cherry with a white head that dissipates quickly. Not much lacing or cascading.

S-tart, cherries, hint of sour apple

T-much like the nose as it is tart and sour with flavors of cherry with a hint of oak, and some graham cracker in the finish. It has a great flavor, maybe not as complex as I expected, but its a very full flavored ale that is truly delicious.

M-While its not that thick and has a good amount of carbonation, it has a full mouthfeel

D-I could drink this just about all day. It is delicious and refreshing.

Overall, this was a great experience and would love to drink it again.

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.
