From a bottle, pours a ruby dark cranberry red, very carbonated.

The nose is funk right away, berries, tart cherries, vinegar. The flavor is not as sour as the nose leads you to believe. The flavor is alot of berry, a little citrus, but something is not sitting well with me regarding the cherry flavor I get. It reminds me of cherry flavored medicine.

This was a bit off for me. It's good, but that medicine aftertaste throws off my enjoyment.
