This beer is super funky on the nose. The barnyard smell takes over the general vicinity of the tasting table as the cork is popped.

The taste is sour cherry with a clear presence of Casey yeast.

Time seems to have treated this beer well; the fruit flavors are prominent, the body is clean, and the carbonation is spot on.

I feel like I was drinking a different bottle than most. Bottled July 2015, poured a beautiful deep red color, pink hue head that dissipated quickly. Smell was cherry pie filling. Taste was deep tart cherry, I didn't a real sour note from it, more tartness. I quite enjoyed how this was coming along. I think I'll save my other bottle for a special occasion.

Tart shows itself in the first samples, and then is malted away. Pinkish body. Very drinkable. Another worthy Casey fruit creation, showcase for the cherry.
