Reddish brown, no head just a white foam. Lots of carbonation, amber on the edges, like a stain glass window.
Cherries, balsamic vinegar, red liquorice.
Cherries, sour, red liquorice, cider vinegar, aged quality.
Medium body, smooth and mellow, medium low carbonation. Light dry finish.
This was the 2007 version of the beer, before the brewery changed hands. Drank in May, 2014 aged for 7 years in my brother's cellar. Awesome mellowing qualities added with the aging.

Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.
A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.
S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.
T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.
Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
