A: It was darker/muddier than expected. It wasn't bright like it should have been.

S: Smell was ok. It smelled a little harsh sweetness.

T: the taste was entirely too sweet. It was actually very hard to pallet. Kind of had to choke it down. not enough acidity either.

M: mouthfeel was fine. not too much or too thin.

O: 2112 vintage. Hard to drink. Had to choke it down what we could and pour out the rest. It was entirely too sweet. It wasn't clean tasting and proper acidity was just not there.

750ml bottle poured into flute glass.

A - Pours a murky reddish mahogany with a pinkish white head.

S - Tons of cherry in the aroma. Tart, sweet, and sour

T - As expected, it is an explosion of cherry flavor. It is mainly tart with a moderate sourness, and a nice sugary/candy sweetness to round it off. It causes a lot of puckering though I consider that a good thing.

M - Thin and sticky body with high carbonation that is prickly on the tongue. The aftertaste does not linger for long and leaves me wanting more.

O - A solid sour cherry, though I prefer the Goudenband. There's a good balance of tart, sour, and sweet in this.

Finally got a nice autumn day with leaves in their peak. Usually have an IPA going but with all the leaves changing their color palates, I decide to go with this cuvée. Pours a red crimson with almost a pinkish head and some lacing. Sediment noted throughout.

Sour mash cherry aroma with a cider vinegar pungency.

Taste is superb! Tart cherry, oak and scant vanilla. I love this especially at colder temps which tastes more like a cherry pop with low sugar. As this warms, more cider vinegar is noted which makes this more tart and welcoming.

Medium body with a dry finish and prickly carbonation.

This is better than any cherry soda I've ever had. If your crazy for cherries with an abv you gotta pull the trigger on this.
