This was an amazing ale to grab! I saw it and thought to myself, "an aged cherry ale? That could be interesting!" Once I got back with it, I put it in the fridge and let it sit and waited to open it until my birthday celebration with a few friends a couple of weeks later. As soon as I pulled off the wrapping, I felt like I made a great choice. The bottle is very clean - it looks professional and minimalist. It has everything it needs, and nothing more.

Once I pulled the cork the aroma burst into the air and the smell was fantastic! It, of course, smelled like cherries, but it was subtle enough to allow the rest of the ingredients come out. I just could not stop smelling it at first.

The taste is just as good, too! It is not overly tart like most other cherry brews, and it's soft and smooth as well. It tingles a little, and the aftertaste is superb. It doesn't linger, but the first breathe after each drink is very refreshing.

As soon as this hits your lips, it immediately begins to relax you and carry you away. As I said before, it is smooth, and it cradles your lips and tongue. After you drink a fair amount (most of the bottle), the tart flavor becomes a little stronger and you can begin to "feel" it on your teeth. So, please, do have something nearby to refresh your mouth (water or even an apple).

Overall, I am very happy I grabbed this bottle on a whim. It's very good, and I'm pleasantly surprised. I would recommend it to anyone who has any interest in fruit flavored brews of any sort!
