3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark ruby red body under a fizzy effervescent pink-tinged head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The aroma is really intense on the cherry with lighter notes of oak and sour funkiness. The flavor is equally intense with the cherries. I canít imagine how many cherries went into a barrel of this in order to make it so crazy intense. Itís like drinking sour cherry pie filling. Just a slight tartness from the yeast, the sour notes seem to come directly from the cherries. Just lightly acidic, just enough to make the cherries brighten up a bit and shine. A light oaky tannic note late on the finish. Medium bodied, really walking the line between sweet and sour. Nice fizzy pinpoint carbonation. Pretty nice beer, most of these Milkeller beers in this series that Iíve had are really pretty tasty.

375 ml bottle to snifter (2013 vintage; shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a mostly opaque black cherry with foamy pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sour and a little funky with notes of tart cherries. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
