Got this one in a trade a couple of years ago -- I have to say it's kind of nice to start whittling down the cellar a little bit because moving it certainly sucked. Review is from notes taken on 8/26/2012 and poured from the bottle to a snifter.

Appearance: Pour is a nice, golden hued color, looks like a cider; as no head, and carbonation seems minimal, just a few small bubbles hitting the surface in random intervals -- not what I typically expect in a wild; body has just a touch of haze but is clear beyond that; nothing is left on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Pretty solid, like a lot of other wilds it has that sweet and very tart saccharine smell to it like a SweetTart; obvious cherry presence, very green, very sour and funky.

Taste: Meh, not so hot -- a fair amount of the sweet and tart acidic fruit -- mostly cherry, but hints of some apple as well; a fair amount of caramel maltiness in it as well; almost buttery. Probably going to be a drain pour, as the mouthfeel sucks.

Mouthfeel: Poor. Flat, no life whatsoever except what little bit of pucker comes from the tartness. Slick, gross.

Overall: I feel like I got ripped off in the trade. I store my beers with immaculate care, so I'm not taking the blame on this one. Cisco should apologize.
