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.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears lightly pink like coolaid or other juice of sorts. A white fizzy cap rests atop with big patchy lace hanging on the glass. A swirl revives a finger to the surface.

The aroma includes plenty of cherry. It smells earthen and yeasty with sulfur. The cherry aspect is pitted and earthen with a spice thats is borderline overripe to rotten but in a good way. As it warms up it gets phenolic and has a light amount of funky plastic.

The taste is tart cherry like pie filling. Somewhat earthen and includes that natural cherry pit character and is lightly medicinal. The aftertaste has some cinnamon in the finish. It is mildly herbal and grassy.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is quite fruity and interesting. Very easy drinking with no alcohol inclusion to be found anywhere which solidifies that whole fruit juice theme that it opens with.

Note: there seems to be some bottle variation with this guy. At the release, there was an unmistable cinnamon character that was very pleasant and unexpected both in the nose and flavor. It seemed to be a spiciness picked up from the barrel aging but it was borderline dominating in the profile. I hardly picked up on that attribute in this bottle but instead some phenolics in it's place. It will be interesting to see where this brew heads with age. Admittedly, I liked this a lot more at release time but my review scores are based on a bottle here and now.
