2003 on the cork.
A - Pours a deep cherrywood maroon with a white soapy wisp of foam that encircles the top of the snifter. Teeny bits of lacing.
S - Light, sour funky cherries, cherry juice. Non-descript.
T - This is awesome. I know a 4.0 doesn't really scream awesome, but hear me out. It's just a plain, regular, simple tart cherry beer. It's nothing more, nothing less. I've had better fruit beers, even better cherry beers... but for what this is, it's ridiculously tasty. It mostly tastes of tart cherries, and slight cork. I wish I could get into it more but that's about all there is to this great little brew.
M - Light, with a nice med/low carbonation that just works.
D - Retardedly drinkable. For lovers of both fruit beers and sours.
Notes: This is one of those "what the fuck" beers that I bought at the store on a whim. Turned out to be quite a stunning little treat.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
