2013 bottle

Appearance: Pours a deep, gorgeous cranberry, with 2 fingers of volcanic fizzy pink head.

Smell: Tart cherries, funk, green apples, cranberry and perhaps a mild touch of horse blanket. There is definitely a vinous element

Taste: Not too much sour here, but quite fruity and a bit tart. It's basically a semi-sweet cherry blast with a dry, tart finish. Definitely not very sweet or sour, but this is very young, after all.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with medium carbonation. Very drinkable, as expected.

Overall: A drinkable and refreshing brew. Need to get my hands on older vintages and get get a little more sour.

Deep ruby red in appearance. Very cloudy in appearance with very little light getting through. A minimal bit of white foam only covers a fraction of the top of the beer. The aroma is of strongly tart cherries. The body is light,crisp,and a bit sticky. The flavor is strong of tart cherries with a long bitter fade.
