Poured a clear ruby color with a light pink head of fizzy foam. It smelled of sweet cherries and a little bready notes. Nice sour bite up front with a strong cherry flavor. Crisp and puckering mouthfeel.

Pours a red brwon colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a good lace. Aroma is sour, oak, berries, Medium to light body, carbonation is good, Surprisingly, taste is not as sour as the smell indicates, cherries, vanilla, fruits, all come in good for a round bitersweet taste. Refreshing and easydrinking,
