375ml Corked green bottle, poured into a snifter. Nice looking presentation.
Very nice dark, nearly opaque, ruby colour. Pours with a substantial head, and leaves nice lacing when that dissipates. Nose isn't too offensive. The cherry odours are very evident, possibly a bit too sweet and cloying for my taste, and underneath the cherries is an unmistakable yeastiness.
Taste is very much of sour cherries and sweet malt. A bit puckering. Overall I find the taste a bit too sweet and candylike for me. I'm too much of a fan of hops I suppose. Mouthfeel is of sparkling wine or champagne, very fizzy. Dances on the tongue, think in the mouth and dry going down. I'd have a hard time doing more than one of these in a session, but again, this just may not be my style of beer.
