Bottled 1/23/2012. Picked the bottle up at the brewery on 6-8-13. Poured in a snifter, the beer is a rose-tinged pink coloring, almost like a dark grapefruit juice, with no head. Huge pop when the cork popped on this one, and tart cherry aromas came out in abundance on the pour. Aromas of subtle cherry sweet and rich on a tart and slightly citrusy backbone. Some funky sour highlights in the nose, also. Flavors are very rich, with an almost floral backbone, that deliver a dark roasted quality at the end of the palate, with woody and earthy tones. In between, there is a rich, dark cherry sweetness that starts in a bold blast that slowly subsides as it washes over the palate. This beer is a bit of a rollercoaster for the taste buds. Tart cherry and slightly acidic characteristics slowly build as you drink. The aftertaste is tangy and tart, with a sweet undertone. Dry, slightly effervescent and sour finish. Very tasty!

This has a light peach color with a clean filtered appearance. The head was a bit red with a light bubbly fizz.
The aroma is off as I catch a musky body odor, a tart sour, honey and tomato ketchup.
For what I caught in the nose I detect none in the taste. The flavor is tart with a cherry and vanilla followed by a minerally earthiness.
The feel is smooth dry with little carbonation and a gritty mineral texture.
Very odd beer here but it's flavor is good enough for a try. Just don't breathe in too deeply when you put your nose in the glass.
