750ml, corked and caged. And my night is looking up. It pours reddish brown with a light pink dense, almost creamy if it weren't so active, head. Smell. Wow! Cherries, wood, grass, lemons, and something almost cinnamon. The taste is woody, with a cherry aftertaste. Somewhere along the way sugared oranges show up, but it's not sweet, if that makes any sense at all. It's not sour at all, but just delightfully dry. It has some vanilla in the mix and just is really interesting. Every time I try to get a hand on it, something else wells up. Mouthfeel is terrific, slick and slightly tingly. Overall, this is one hell of a beer! I'm not sure what to make of it, but it doesn't care, it has far too much going on to care about my opinion.
