750ml bottle poured into fluted snifter.

Pour is colored like bing cherry juice. Maroon and mostly clear. Pink foamy head pops itself out fast and leaves a tiny ring around the glass.

Aroma is bright cherry juice, sweet and tart.

The flavor is cherry. Sweet cherries, tart cherries and a hint of background funk and grass. A crisp and clean flavored brew.

Moderate carbonation comes through a bit effervescent and lighter bodied.

I think this tasted and looked fantastic. Refined and layered flavors.

Bottle shared by Eric that foamed over upon opening, thanks for sharing! Big tart cherry juice on the nose and in the flavor with just a hint of earthy light funkiness. Its a tasty beverage but I was honestly hoping for a bit more funk of tart or something,
