Had this on 2014-09-21 in Spartanburg, SC from a 25 oz bomber, which has a regular bottle cap but is sealed with wax. My buddy Pat brought this on the plane from Wisconsin, which is why I can have it here in SC.

A - Murky cherry-red/brown with a huge 4-finger tan head that drops pretty quickly to 1-finger with light lace.

S - Ginormous cherry aroma and a bit of yeast and light malt. Great smell.

T - Well, if you like the taste of cherries you'll love this. It's sweet but less than a Lindemann's Kriek. Fortunately the sweetness isn't cloying and there's a mild malt body and some oak tannin to add complexity. There's a decent amount of tartness to balance the sweetness.

M - Medium body with low carbonation yields a mildly creamy feel.

O - Well crafted. Tons of flavor and aroma. Hard to believe this is just 4.0%
