750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2009 bottle. Bottled September 1, 2011.

Appearance - Bright pink with a faint pink head. Thick collar. Hazy.

Smell - Really nice cherry flavor. Deep cherry flavor. Oaky and vanilla is very strong. A ton oof acidity but not a ton of funk.

Taste - Sour cherries. Lots of oak. Vanilla. Funk is much stronger. Barnyard is more prominent here too. The cherries are the star of the show though.

Mouthfeel - Dry, very sour. Medium body.

Overall - Fantastic cherry flavor. Best characteristic of this beer.
