Pours a very dark ruby, almost cola colored. Bit of alcohol legs. Almost no head.

Smell is very cherry, little bit like unsweetened kool-aid. Very strong smell.

Taste is crisp and tart, lots of cherry up front. Oaky and almost smokey flavor.

Medium bodied. Delicious sour, probably my favorite out of Russian River.
