12oz bottle thanks to thebigredone. Poured into Lawson's tulip.
A- Pours a translucent slightly brownish cherry red with about a half finger of white head that recedes to just a thin layer. Not much lacing. Consistent rising carbonation bubbles throughout the glass, definitely above average carbonation.
S- Definitely a very aromatic smell of cherries that is almost perfume like and slightly tart with some oak and malts hiding in the background. Pleasant smelling but at the same time I'm not sure how I feel about it in a beer.
T- Very strong taste of cherries right off the bat, almost a little bit too sweet and powerful almost like soda, mixed with some oak. Finishes with a light tartness and a lingering aftertaste of sweet cherries. Interesting tasting, but a little bit too strong on the cherries.
M- Fairly thin, lots of carbonation, abv well hidden.
O- I had mixed feelings about this beer. It was very interesting and definitely big on aroma and flavor, however I felt like the cherries were a little bit too overpowering and the more I drank it the more I disliked it. I would recommend trying it out, but personally it's not something that I would drink all the time.

4.1/5 rDev -1.2%

A: Cloudy tan color with an orange hue. Persistent white ring makes up the head.
S: Potent combo of fruit and vinegar. Same fruity yeast/oak aroma as the NG fruit beers, albeit much more acidic. A little nutty brown malt somewhere underneath. Interestingly, aroma becomes more lactic with time.
T: Moderate initial sourness, followed by rich oak/malt combo. Cherries and vanilla are complimented by a mild lactic acidity. Flavors are pretty rounded several years after bottling.
M: Not a ton of carbonation left, but enough. Body is medium, acidity noticeable.
Nice beer, though better when fresh.
