2018 bottle into tulip.

A: Pours a clear apricot color with an inch of short lived off white foam. Slight ruby hue to the beer.
S: Cherry juice, vanilla, and peach stand out along with musty dampness and a bright tart acidity. Hints of spicy cinnamon and earthy funk.
T: Follows the nose with sweet cherry juice up front followed by stone fruit, vanilla and musty wood/grains. The cinnamon comes out in the finish along with a more syrupy cherry flavor that carries into the aftertaste.
M: Medium-full body, slick up front with a dry and crisp finish. Tingly fuzzy carbonation. Acid is there but tartness isn’t biting.
O: I love the concept of experimenting with previous beers to see if how new ingredients can affect the flavor profile. I personally thought the original was perfect, but the cherry adds another layer of complexity to the fruit profile.

Mostly clear reddish pink beer. Quickly fading head no lacing. The aroma is as advertised on the bottle. Oak, cherry, peach and vanilla. Lightly sweet tart sour with peaches, cherries cinnamon and vanilla. Light and carbonated. Tasty beer.
