750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Reddish brown body. Medium off-white head.

Smell - It's not a strong cherry, but it's there. More toasty malt and some sharp acidity. Sharp fresh oak.

Taste - Much stronger cherry. Sour cherry, but very strong sour pie cherry. A little bit of that caramel malt, but none of the toastiness. Becomes a bit vinegary.

Mouthfeel - Strong sourness. Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - I was optimistic when I smelled it, because I thought it would be an interesting take. Instead it turned out to be a very strong and simple cherry sour.
