Twelve ounce bottle shared last night.

A: Pours a clear reddish orange with a 1/4-inch thick white head which settles to the rim and leaves spots of lace.

N: Sour, tannic, fruity - cherries.

T: Fruity, sweetly tart, cherry skin and juice, cranberry seems to have faded.

M: Light body and light carbonation. Finish is tart and fruity.

O: Not much cranberry left in this bottle, instead plenty of cherry replacement. Aged nicely, one of my earliest acquisitions. Thanks to whomever added this to our trade way back in the day.

Pour is dark amber with a pinkish hue and a tight white head. Nose is huge cranberry with a strong sawdust oakiness in back and notes of vanilla. Taste is tart cranberry and lots of oaky goodness. Notes of vanilla in back with an assertive carbonation on a medium body with a very soft palate.
