750ml cork and cage bottle. Bottle 72 of 360. Served into a stemmed glass 4/30/2016.

Pours a darker reddish body, with a one finger white head; a bit of a brown hue. Clearly, time has been doing some stuff to the appearance, based on the other reviews I've been reading when consumed fresh. Smell is damp oak, cherry skin and a lot of musty cobweb funk at first. The funk and oak seem to dominate up front, but as the beer warms and opens up, the cherry fruit simply just starts exploding. Whoa. Flavour is in that sweet middle between funk and fruit; the cherry starts moving on your tastebuds at a high pace in the background of funk and oak. It is more of the cherry skin rather than cherry flesh that is contributing a lot of the flavour. Tannins as well. This reminds me a lot of the 2007 Lou Pepe Kriek that was consumed later in the weekend. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, lots of cherry skin on the finish.

750 mL bottle. Looks like apple juice with a bit of redness. Smell has a nice cherry aroma. Lots of vanilla. Sweet cherry. Mild acidity. Taste is a very nice cherry. Lightly sweet. Some sweetness. Finish has a strong sour bite, but it's never too strong. Medium body. Delicious, even with the intense finish.
