There is significant aggressive carbonation, and the mouthfeel is crisp.

The flavor of tart cherries is fully developed, potent, and anchor the beer through to the finish. As the cherry dissipates a bit a sweet doughy quality comes through on the back end midsip, and gives the beer a pastry like flavor. That however is short lived, as drier oaky wood notes clear things out.

The lingering flavor is sharply tart cherries and light wood.

A great beer at the near pinnacle of the style. It leans towards the one-dimensional, but there is just enough to open the beer up to make it a real worthy beer of seeking out.
