Deep red-orange, small head. Tart berry aroma. Fairly sweet initial taste that quickly turns tart, quite complex. Medium body, lively carbonation and acidity, long finish that turns quite dry against the initial sweetness. Awesome, very curious to try it after a few years of cellaring.

Pours a murky reddish brown with a small off white head. Looots of cranberry on the nose, tart apple, a slightly musty funk note, light notes of cherry, and just a hint of oak. Lots of tart cranberry on the taste, nice oaky notes, a little vanilla, nice bright apple notes. Very straightforward, not super sour or cloyingly sweet and artificial tasting. Very well made.

Bottle from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a fairly clear pinkish amber color with a with a huge bubbly pink tinged head that persists forever. The aroma is sweet tart and fruity. Tart and sweet cherries with bits of brown sugar and a touch of apple cider and tart berries with a hint of vanilla and oak. The flavor is quite sweet but the tart and fruitiness from the berries and apples counter that nicely. Very subtle woody vanilla flavors round this one out nicely. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light syrupy mouthfeel. Nice brew, I would have really liked a bit more tartness, but I still had no problem enjoying this one.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Bottle. Thx jack. Nose is super contrated apple cherry juice. Sweet, but in a good way--smells like one of the sweetest, freshest apples you have ever tatsed. Delicious stuff. Could drink a lot of this stuff. Tastes like one best juice cocktails I’ve ever had. Fantastic stuff. As expected, delicious elixir from the Carey’s!

Murky reddish color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma and tastes were quite fruity, with lots of cranberries, apple and oak. Overall, fresh fruits, but finishing a bit sweet for me.

Bottle. Reddish cranberry juice look. Aroma is tart cherries and apple juice. Taste is mainly tart cherries and apple as well. Refreshing amount of carbonation. Great stuff to enjoy with dinner.
