4.08/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 2 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dull ruddy mahogany with virtually no head or carbonation. Aroma of tart cherries hits me from across the room as soon as the cork is removed, long before any glassware is involved. A closer inspection reveals its earthy, winey, robust cherry scent, like fruit left to ferment in a dirty bucket outside.

The taste is slap-in-the-face sour, an overpowering force of funky barnyard and spoiled fruit. Oh, it's cherries all right -- but some sort of evil mutation birthed from a lab by a madman with dreams of conquest. Acetic sourness for days, mere hints of musty cherry and black cherry flavors, maybe some burgundy gone bad. This is what drinking that juice way past its date in the back of the fridge must taste like.

Mouthfeel is medium and flat, almost like drinking juice instead of beer. Probably has more in common with a cherry wine than a cherry beer. Makes some people gag but I like it. I'm strange that way.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Deep ruby red in appearance. Very cloudy in appearance with very little light getting through. A minimal bit of white foam only covers a fraction of the top of the beer. The aroma is of strongly tart cherries. The body is light,crisp,and a bit sticky. The flavor is strong of tart cherries with a long bitter fade.
