Bottle shared by Liam, batch 3

Hazed red colour, ring of off white head, not much in the way of lace either. Smell is full of cherry and oak, vinious and fruity, red berry, alcohol at points and some malt/wheat as well. Taste is of cherry but also fairly malty before getting to oak and tart fruits, drying sour berry with a bit of alcohol flavours on the back end. Medium drying carbonation, medium body. Quite good, but I feel this would benefit from a bit more time but would have it again gladly anytime.
