2014 bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a murky red with no head. Smell is oak, fruit leather, hint of vinegar, big tart cherries. Taste is sour cherries up front, very juicy and a little spicyness that I love in cherry beers but not too heavy. Nice carb. Very well done beer

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. The aroma is of black cherries accompanied by a mild component of acetone. Medium-bodied and astringent with only trace carbonation. The flavor is sour with lots of cherry goodness, but finishes raspy, coarse and Mojave dry. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
