look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A-Almost black in the glass, but a clear ruby when pouring, one finger pink head that dissipates instantly.

S-Cherries, not much oak, and slight funk.

T-Mainly cherries, they are not overly sweet though. Mild funk and tart notes. Very mild oak.

M-Lighter nice carbonation.

O-Avoided the cherry flavor being too sweet which was a huge plus for me.
